Gate to Graveney, frosty dawn
This shot was taken on my first endeavour into dawn light photography. Up until then I had read about photographers getting up in the dark half way through the night ruining a decent nights sleep just to take a few photos and frankly I thought they must be mad.
Eventually, once I was convinced that I was never going to make great landscape images without great light I decided to set the alarm clock and take the plunge.
It was a revelation to see the huge difference the quality of light falling onto a landscape makes. Light is of course the main ingredient. This frosty gate is secondary to that and photographed in the middle of a bright summers day it looks as dull as ditch water. I know because I have that photograph too.
