After several weeks of persistent wet weather, a clear spell yesterday meant a really cold start to today, with mist and a ground frost. With fields all around us, it took only a moment to find a spot to shoot the early morning light.
Near the end of August and the days are getting shorter already. Morning mists create soft gentle light, perfect for photography.
I was awake even earlier than usual this morning and around 6am saw that the light was promising. Grabbed shoes and my camera and walked the few yards to the farm gate nearby. Just time to snatch a few shots before the sun came up fully and the beautiful colours disappeared.
This was the sun coming up at the ungodly hour of 530am today. With no trains running over the Bank Holiday, our weekend guests needed to catch the 622am train back to London in time for work today… I’m up early most days, but not usually this early!
Last morning of our short break in Dorset, and the weather didn’t disappoint. A quick walk down to the harbour before we left and a last chance to look at the boats. I figure we will be back before long…
6.20am today. Came down for my morning cuppa and saw a patch of colour in an otherwise grey sky. Pulled some shoes on, grabbed my phone and popped outside – this spot is just a few yards from home. It lasted just long enough for a photo before it clouded over completely and all the colour was gone.
… is the one you have with you. So true! Came downstairs just before 7am today, and saw the makings of a great sky. Knowing it would likely only last a few minutes at most, I pulled some shoes and a coat on, and grabbed my phone and wide angle converter lens, and took the 2 minute walk across the fields. This is what I saw… If I had stopped to get my ‘real’ camera and tripod etc, I would certainly have missed it – it only lasted a few seconds longer as the sun rose and washed out the colours.
On family transport duties today, I knew I wouldn’t get much chance for photography, so grabbed the opportunity of an early shot soon after sunrise. The sharpest frost yet of the winter, and a low angle, this was taken just a few yards from home using my iPhone fitted with the Moment wide angle converter. Processed in Lightroom Mobile with border etc added using Snapseed.
