That Early Morning Mist

Sunlight was not the only element of the atmosphere on my early morning walks in Scotland. The sun had toy work at lifting the moisture in the air as well as lighting up the landscape.

These views are looking inland from Knockbrex Hill, Galloway.

That Early Morning Dew

Early morning sunlight, dew on the grass and flowers – what more could you ask for?

The Daffodils have been and almost gone at Easter time in Galloway, Scotland but the Bluebells are coming through and both the flowers and the grass look like they are revealing in the early morning sun.

That Early Morning Light

The angle of light on the stones on this beach proves the walk I had that morning in Galloway, SW Scotland really was not long after sunrise.

That Early Morning Look

I woke early on a number of occasions while we were in Scotland, and when the sun is rising in a place like Galloway, there is nothing better than an early morning walk!

Looking The Other Way – Local Landscape

To start this week I am looking again at the landscape around me. This early morning shot is looking the other way to that which was posted last week.

Looking north west from Graig Fawr the view takes in Carmarthenshire in late Autumn with the coniferous trees of the forest at Fforest on the left – see this week’s featured video below.

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.
