On the way to Lochnagar - Sunrise

I was too slow to get out of my bed - I was on my way to Lochnagar, still half an hour away when the sun broke on the mountain, and I was supposed to be there. I found myself in a quandry do I stop and take the photo or do I drive on and try and catch it. Just as well I stopped, as ten minutes later the light had lost its magic. I'll put it down to lessons learned.

Canon EOS 300D Digital Rebel

Worthwhile stopping. Those first red rays clipping the summit is a fine sight. The two birds rising into the dawn sky adds interest.

I really like that pink glow - works very well in contrast with the cool blue of the forest. I like it a lot. V
