The Gamble!

By Morgs  
Sometimes, even on Christmas Eve you've got to gamble! So, when you see that the forecast is a clear night followed by a day where the weather will deteriorate, you have to consider as a landscape photographer whether you'll get that red sky in the morning scenario. Over the years I have gambled and lost so many times, only to watch the sky get lighter as the sky goes from a dark grey gradually to a light grey. Well today, 24.12.11, in South East Wales, we were treated to one of those wow sunrises, and I was at one of my favourite haunts to capture its glory!! Merry Christmas to you all!!!!!
