As you can still rise at a reasonable hour now to capture the sunrise it makes sense to set the alarm clock, crawl out from under the duvet and grab your gear for an early (-ish) start.

If you still need to be persuaded, take a look at these ten top shots that have won the Editor's Choice accolade on ePHOTOzine and are tagged with 'sunrise'. You can find more award-winning images in the Editor's Choice Gallery

Before you do, here's a quick reminder of some of the kit you'll need and a few links to sunset photography tutorials that are filled with shooting advice.

Gear Suggestions:

Vanguard ABEO tripod feet and Kinray bagPack a torch ( a head torch is ideal) as you'll be heading out before there's much light in the sky and make sure there's space for a graduate neutral density filter in your camera bag as you may find the sky's a lot lighter than the ground. A bag range which features plenty of room for accessories is the Kinray from Vanguard. The are lightweight bags which are designed to be used by active photographers.

A wide-angle is a must -have lens for typical landscape shots while a tele zoom will be handy for a shot where the sun is more of the focus. If you do pack the zoom do not look at the sun through the lens as there is the risk of eye damage.

Ensure your camera's battery is fully charged the night before and pack a tripod as the lower light levels can mean shutter speeds are lower. Spiked feet, which are available on the ABEO PRO models, will ensure your tripod stays in place and these can be bought as optional extras if your tripod doesn't come with them.
