A chance sighting of the crepuscular rays over this freshly harvested field saw me rush back with my camera. With the sun rapidly dipping below the horizon, it was a race to find the composition I wanted. Once set up, it took some considerable effort to move the two bales in the foreground just a few inches so I could draw the eye towards the focal point in the distance.
Mam Tor in the Peak District offers one of the finest views in all of Derbyshire and I was fortunate enough to capture this glorious sunrise in the summer of 2020.
Seeing a sunrise in the Lake District is always a wonderful experience but I will never forget dawn breaking over Blea Tarn lighting up the Langdale Pikes in the distance. What an an absolute privilege it was to capture such a magical moment as the fells absorbed the golden warmth of the early morning sun.

The view across the valley towards Teston Bridge catches everyone's eye and none more so than when the early morning mist is rising. I was there to capture this scene at dawn but my patience was tested as it took nearly two hours before the bridge started to appear.
