Sunny Sunday Sunrise in the Lake District

Driving to the Lake District Mountain Trial very early on Sunday morning I was fortunate see the first light arriving over Coniston Water and the nearby mountains – not quite sunrise, I know, but the alliteration was too good to miss. As always, all photos will open in a new window on clicking.
