Coniston Water, Cumbria, England

This is a long lost tranny that I thought had disappeared. I found it at the bottom of my drawer happily undamaged but covered in dust. I cleaned it up and scanned it as it represents the only shot that I managed to take during a stunning moment when the mist hovering above the lake temporarily and very briefly was stained pink. As soon as the sun struck, it began to slowly lift away from the surface. Barely seconds later the twilight blues evaporated and the delicate colour contrast was gone. So pleased I found it again it has long been a favourite of mine.
