An early winter's morning looking east from the Malvern Hills, near where I live. The sun was still below the horizon, with the early hint of a golden sunrise showing above the horizon. The lights from distant roads and houses still show up like in a night-time view, but the gloom is starting to lift from the countryside. This seemed like a thin curtain between night and day. Within a few minutes the sun will rise, the little electric lights will disappear and the morning will appear. But before that happens we have this short glimpse of the light between the two worlds of night and day.2014 Malverns - Edge of Night

This was taken after the sun was up. I really like the way the light looks when you zoom in with a telephoto; you can see rays of the low sun raking through the low mist, over the frosty fields. I also like the layers that the hedgerows make, and the long shadows of the trees. This sort of view is something that is hard to capture with the naked eye as the sun is too strong for us to focus in to the light like this.2014 Malverns - Morning Light
