Sunrise on Higger Tor

By Paul_Newcombe  
Higger Tor, looking to Carl Wark. Peak District, Derbyshire, UK.

From my very first sunrise shoot. And my first upload to my new ePhotzine account. Taken just after the sun rose over the horizon and we moved into the golden hour.

Nice foreground Paul - it would be even nicer if a bit more of that sun had found its way across the rocks too.

Top notch Paul, you've caught a rare glimpse of the Peaks at its best in the morning light. Composition and light used to maximum effect here.
Thanks for the comments Smile Just getting to grips with my new account. MrBlueSky; that's a pain. I was really lucky with the light. I was watching the weather and it was looking good, so went for it. mpnuttal; yeah, I know what you mean. I could have hung around until the sun was higher but went off to do some other compositions. On some of those the rocks were fully bathed in light. I'll look at popping some of those up in the coming days.

Thanks Harsh. I didn't feel at my best getting up at that time Wink

It was well worth the effort Paul - great light on the rocks, good composition and very nice colours.

A view I know well. It is not easy trying to get up for the sunrise, but certainly worth when it when you get one as good as this! As Mark said above, I would have liked to see the sun on the foreground, but still a great effort for your first sun up Wink

Sorry for the late reply Martin. Had a recent busy time and just getting back into things. Only had time to keep on top of Flickr. Will try to catch up this weekend.
