sunrise at tavy cleave with a frozen pool in the foreground


Tavy Cleave

I shot this scene of Tavy Cleave twice on this particular winter. On both occasions the water in the pool was still and reflected Sharp Tor beautifully. The frozen surface of the water ehre gives a different feeling. I waited quite a while on arival at the location for the sun to move down the tor above in order to provide a stong colour contrast, and acheive a more richly coloured reflection. I think I was particularly lucky that the ice had frozen in such a beatiful way, with two distinct textures to break up the foreground pool. I suspect the ice on the edges had frozen a couple of days before and withstood the slightly warmer days whilst the centre of the pool had only frozen the night before.
