Split! - Buttermere, Lake District

A shot of the hills surrounding Lake Buttermere at sunset. The last rays from the setting winter sun were still hit the peak just as the moon rose from behind the peak on the right. The foreground is in shadows while the the background is lit which in my opinion adds contrast and depth to this image. Buttermere is one of the most photographed locations in the Lake District and its always difficult to find a unique perspective so I was delighted to come across this scene.
