Lone Tree Sunrise, Llanberis Wales, 1st Place Award Winner. Master Of Photography
Undeterred by a drive in me to do whatever it took to get my one impressive shot I re-read my guidebooks and map and planned my route for the early hours of the morning. The car journey had shattered me, as I had been driving in bad weather conditions. Determined to get to my location, on the west side of the lake in good time the next morning, I decided to set three alarm clocks then crashed down on my bed, and sleep took me quickly. I was rudely and suddenly awoken, not many hours later by the shrill of the three annoying alarms, going off in succession. I threw myself out of bed, and out of my accommodation to be met by a bitterly cold morning.
Hiking in darkness to the lake edge, no longer feeling my nose, just making out my hot breath hanging in the icy air, and my fingers were cold and numb. I could not see or make out anything in front of me, making it difficult to find my subject, the Lone Tree, which was standing on the edge of Lake Llyn Padarn, somewhere down there in the water. There was an eerie silence for which seemed like an eternity as time seemed to stand still.
As dawn broke on that winter’s morning, something extraordinary was happening across Lake Llyn Padarn.
The astonishingly beautiful sunrise and stillness of that morning was something to see. I felt blessed to capture the moment.
Taking several shots, deciding which looked best, I chose to place the tree to the left of my image. The mist came rolling in to enhance my composition. The lake became calm as it began to present to me, much like a gift, the stunning reflections you can see in this photograph.
