Early morning mist

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:

Once the colours started to leave the sky, I took a walk to a nearby stream.  Luckily, there was a swan posing for me.

I think I may have a little sleep now!
