I arrived at the Ben Nevis visitor's centre at 4:10am, just to realise the fog was so dense, that I couldn't find the sign to the path. So I stuck on some Radio 1 and waited for half and hour. It was not clearing at all. I thought I can't come back without any photographs, so I put my boots on and ventured into the fog. After about 30 minutes of walking up hill I noticed, that in fact it wasn't fog, but really low cloud in the valley. Above about 200-300 metres the area was completely clear and the visibility was excellent. This is a view of the valley I came from.

Roche Abbey...

A re-working of an image I made in 2009 when the snow was here...

The abbey was founded in 1147. The co-founders of Roche were Richard de Busli, likely the great-nephew of the first Roger de Busli, the Norman magnate builder of Tickhill Castle, and Richard FitzTurgis. When the monks first arrived in South Yorkshire from Newminster Abbey in Northumberland, they chose the most suitable side of the stream that runs through the valley, on which to build their new Cistercian monastery.

Twenty-five years later, at the end of the century, the Norman Gothic great church had been finished, as well as most of the other buildings.

From the start, the Abbey of Roche, built for the so-called White Monks, as the Cistercians were known, had an almost otherworldly air. It was, after all, built at the northern end of an area once covered by Sherwood Forest, and it was said that Robin Hood went to Mass here.

The Roche Abbey records were lost or destroyed so there are no accounts of what went on in the abbey, other than there were 14 monks and an unknown number of novices at the time of dissolution in 1538.

Left in ruin, the land passed through many private hands until the 4th Earl of Scarbrough decided it needed revitalising to enhance his adjoining family seat at Sandbeck Park. Lord Scarborough enlisted the talents of Capability Brown.

With an astonishing disregard for history, Brown demolished buildings, built large earth mounds and turfed the whole site.[15] Until the end of the 19th century Roche Abbey remained buried beneath Brown's work and wooded parkland. But subsequent excavation in the 1920s returned Roche to its former splendour.

We came here on our first night in Iceland. The wind was very strong which make it hard to get sharp shots and keep the tripod steady, but I managed to get a few I was happy with. This was made up of 6 vertical photos - 3 for the land & 3 for the sky, then merged in Photoshop. On the left the sun is setting, on the right the moon is rising.

Wow, my first Daily Deviation :D
A big thankyou for the DD suggestion and feature, and thanks to everyone for the views, comments and favourites :D

Update: I recently found out I won the Landscape category with this photo in Michael The Maven's 2012 International Photography Contest on michaelthemaven.com :D

It is clear that I like symmetry and reflections in the water very much. I've got lots of photos like this :)

A picturesque sunrise above the Alps with view of the Grat Mountain between Diepen and Rophaien. The grass on the mountain slopes appears very soft in the morning light. The contrast between light and shadow accentuates the curved slopes of the Grat very nicely.
