"This photograph was taken in the relatively small period of time in the morning as the sun rises above the surrounding hills when most of the trees at the southern end of Buttermere are in sunlight but the surrounding valley slopes are still in shade. This coincided with some misty conditions that helped to pick out the rays of sunlight streaming in from the south east of the valley. Within about half an hour of the sunlight reaching the trees, the mist had dispersed and the atmosphere was lost."
