Rising with the Sun

I arrived at Penllergaer Woods at 4.45 AM last Saturday morning for a production day that took a little over six hours before returning to download the content of my cameras and field recorder. The day went well but I am still suffering from the midge bites I got for my trouble.

I started out with a preliminary scout around the valley floor and watched the sky lighten, the moon fade and listened to the birds wake up.

Here are some of the preliminary shots I got along with the dawn chorus.

  1. There’s nothing more captivating than the moon! I never get a decent photo of her glory. It may have something to do with my ineptitude with a camera . . .

    • Much more likely have something to do with chance. It was pure luck that I was there in that position at that time on the job with my camera.
