Blea Tarn whatevers

About half way through my second cloud free morning at Blea Tarn I realised the trick to this...a 2-stop nd grad to the sky and a 1-stop nd grad to the fg with a polariser to control the reflection. It's a tight crop I know but I watched the shadow withdraw from the valley hoping it would leave the fg trees illuminated. In essence this is my take on the famous 'Buttermere Pines' shot! 1/6 sec, f/11, 0EV, ISO 100
