Fairfield. Sunlight strikes the Church

By derekhansen
Probably the best combination of light and conditions on this shoot. The Frost was still hard and the rising sunlight was just high enough to hit the church and reeds. My heart was in my mouth.

No probs Derek , it's the hairy chin and gruff voice that deceives people Tongue

so many good things going on with this image. The light on the church, the frost on the grass, the pinks in the clouds and the clarity are all a plus. Very nice indeed.
