I know I’m not eligible to win but I thought I’d share this with you anyway.
As you’ve probably seen from my posts in The Great Big non-Drone Photo Thread! I’ve got bit of a thing for sunrises and sunsets
The story behind my personal-best photo?
I walk my dog nearly every morning on the local flashes (disused coal mines, purposefully collapsed and flooded many years ago in order to make a massive wildlife nature reserve). We’re here probably +320 days a year, through sun, wind, rain and come winter, pitch black dark too (Maglite LED torch rocks!), my wife thinks I’m slightly mental. Anyway, due to work commitments we’re usually here from 6am daily, even on the weekends (routine now) and during those golden-hour months we see some stunning sunrises. Especially in autumn, as you get this eerie freezing fog hovering really low over the lakes and through the damp woodlands. Ever since I got a drone I’ve wanted to fly it above the fog so one seriously cold morning I stood there for over an hour, just waiting for the sun to come up above the fog… bloody hell, my fingers we so cold after this flight I could barely fly the drone back!
Worth it though. Bit like some of yours that you’ve posted here, it was a right place at the right time kinda moment, albeit a somewhat planned time and moment.
