Last light at Reeth

This is undboubtedly my favourite landscape image I have taken this year. Light is so important, and never more so than with landscape photography. Low sun gives much softer light and less contrast allowing for the capture of good detail throughout the scene. This image is incredibly simple, using one of my favoured approaches: no polariser; just straight light, with a graduated filter to darken the sky. This image was one of a series taken at around 7pm around half a mile east of Reeth in the Yorkshire Dales.
