Its always a pleasure to get a shot like this after getting out of a warm bed before sunrise on a cold day.
Taken along sheepwash road, the low ground mist enhancing the play of light amongst the trees makes the frostbite all worthwhile.
The next two shots were taken looking west, with the sunrise highlighting the trees. Also on Sheepwash road.
The last having a distinctly European feel.
It is always a gamble getting up to catch good ground mist, though it can be rewarding.
The last shot is at Kangaloon, with the early morning light giving the scene a richness of colour that is absent within moments of the sun rising fully. No enhancement was applied to any of these photos beyond an altering of the neutral balance.
