I took the picture in September last year on a quick trip to the White Peak in Staffordshire. The forecast predicted morning mist lifting into a sunny day (usually good), and I'd wanted to capture a sunrise from Chrome Hill near Hollinsclough so I set an early alarm. It was a difficult drive from Lincoln to Hollinsclough in thick fog but finally made it and got up the hill just after 6am.
I enjoyed talking to some other photographers while the sun came up and the mist flowed. Eventually one of the others went back down the hill and it looked like he'd add some interest to the scene.
The Benniworth image has now been voted as Campaign to Protect Rural England's favourite picture of the competition. They are a sponsor of the competition and wins a book and a year's membership. A nice bonus!
