OK, guys. It seems the polling part worked and you voted for some more UK: Northern Wales.
This tree grows near or in the lake, depending on the water level. As you can see, approximately half a meter of water was missing to make the tree an island.
We were based near the lake during our stay. Thus I got up early to be there for sunrise and left the house at about 6:00 in the morning. I was only about 1 kilometer to walk. As the weather seemed to become perfect for such a morning, I planned to go here right at the first morning. You know, weather is able to change fast and not taking an opportunity can lead to waste a chance. Thus I went out before the planned breakfast to be back at right before the time aligned for breakfast.
Side note: I wasn’t the first one out. When leaving the house for the lake, I met another photographer. But, he was outside to smoke instead of taking photos. Even when I told him about my plan, he didn’t want to come with me. Later he regretted to not having joined me for the little walk.
The silence, calmness, and serenity of this scene gives so much of power. A perfect start in such a week.
