It looks like we’ve skipped summer this year and gone straight from late spring into early autumn. I checked the weather last night and it didn’t look like there would be much in the way of high cloud to get an epic sunrise so I wasn’t planning on going out. However, I woke up at 4.45am, so I thought I might pop out to see what I could get locally.
I took a walk to a field just a few minutes walk away. Although it’s close, I’ve not been in there for about 6 months, so I took a wander around to try to find a nice composition. It’s very flat (which is pretty much the case for a 50 mile radius), but there are a few trees dotted around. I found one which was “resting”. I tried a few angles; it was very close to another tree, which didn’t help as it was difficult to get a balanced composition without the branches getting into the shot. This is the first shot that I got; I like the colours in this one, but not too happy with the composition.
I moved around to the right and got this one which I’m happier with:
I think I may have a little sleep now!
