Dawn on Pendle Hill by Carol Watson

“This image is a view across Black Moss Reservoir to Pendle Hill. Taken in November 2016, it was an early start to catch the sunrise which turned out to be a bit disappointing, but there was a little colour in the sky which could be enhanced in post processing. I thought the foreground lacked interest, so I added the boat from an image of Windermere. I also thought the horizon needed softening, so I added a  bit of mist in Photoshop.”
