Default Arigna Valley, Ireland at Sunrise

Image is a panorama of Arigna Valley, Co Roscommon, Ireland at sunrise. Lake is Lough Allen and mountain in the distance is Slaibe an Iarainn and image is taken from the Arigna Mountains, famous for Iron mining from the middle ages, and Coal mining in the last 200 years, which has since finished up.

The valley is also known as energy valley due to mining of coal for many years, hosting of a large coal burning powerstation up until the early 90's, having a smokeless fuel production factory still in operation(shown in image), and having a large Wind Turbine Farm on 2 of its main mountains.

Image captured at sunrise, pano of 4 images, standard processing ( sharpen, contrast etc) along with a bit of dodging and burning to bring the sky out a bit better.

Stunning. I don't know what else to call this other than perfection.
