Standing in the pre-dawn you could feel the chill in the very marrow of your bones. So you have to ask – what prompts a relatively rational human being to get up & out early in the dead of winter? It’s a question which deserves a sensible answer.
Landscape photographers love the soft light offered in the early morning & late afternoon. To us it is prime shooting time irrespective of the season. So, enduring minus degrees centrigrade in mid winter is a small price to pay for beautiful scenery.
This image is of the Hawkdun Ranges predawn. The land lies brooding under its partial blanket of snow & you can sense it wanting to respond to the warming rays of the sun.
The emerging colour in the sky suggests that sunlight is not far away, but for the moment, the chill prevails.
