Our dreamy photo of the day comes from Cornwall, England and was taken by Andrew Hocking, who writes:

Today began with a 6 am alarm to head up to Rough Tor on Bodmin Moor in time for the sunrise. During the 75 minute drive in the dark I had my doubts with the weather – thinking it could well be too cloudy and a wasted trip. With the constant mizzle keeping my camera in its bag for weeks now, I was keen to pounce on this weekend's "good" forecast. I pressed on, parked up at Rough Tor car park, grabbed the camera and marched up the Tor and into the clouds. In the moments before the sun came up I began to think my doubts were founded. But when the sun rose, the clouds lingering over the Tor shifted to reveal morning mist drifting around Maiden Tor and Brown Willy in the golden sunlight.
