Sunset shot on Christmas Eve 2009 in fields near my home. It had been a beautiful day but really cold with frost, mist and lingering snow.
Canon 5D mkII 24-70 f2.8L. 3 stop ND grad.

Just a hobby photographer who likes early morning light (and autumn leaves)

    Beautiful James. Finally you managed to get a break and catch some of that great light I think. Didn’t venture far today myself. Too cold :) Really nice image.

  • Hi Jim, yeah got a few days off now but the weather is going to change. When we get the southwesterly airstream off the Atlantic it gets warmer and wetter. The air is clearer too but seems to give weak sunrises and sets. Maybe that makes the difference you noticed in our shots? Anyway thanks for stopping by and enjoy your time off :o)

    I think you could have something there about the weather James. The RAF base at Lossiemouth apparently was established here due to the mild weather. Everything seems to ‘drop’ over on the West and we don’t get too much rain here for sure. However things are changing weather wise!

  • That must be it Jim, in summer when we get continental air the blue skies are kind of milky from pollutants but the sunrises and sunsets are great – the light is more diffuse. That’s my theory anyway ;o)
