Sunrise has to be my favourite time of the day

Posted on May 24, 2017 by Admin under Sunrise


Above is probably one of my favourite sunrise photographs that I have ever taken.

I guess that I am lucky to live next to the beautiful South Downs in East Sussex. Although living somewhere so beautiful it is all too easy to take things for granted in our surrounding. With Glyndbourne Opera House’s wind turbine in the distance it has taken me a while to see any beauty in it. All that changed early one morning about three years ago. This image was taken very early one summer morning and the mist was laying heavy in the low lands stretching from Lewes East Sussex up towards Crowborough one of the if not highest points in Sussex. Such a breath taking view missed by so many still sleeping heavy in their beds.


That Special Time

Sunrise is in itself such a special time, the peace and quite,  the awakening wild life welcoming the new day with a fantastic variation of bird song. I guess being an insomniac helps me,  as I have never found it difficult to welcome a new day whether it be with a Camera or a Fishing Rod.

My daughter Hannah’s always teases me when I take Sunrise or Sunset photos with words along the lines of “Another Blooming Sunset” or maybe a little more colourful 🙂

Anyway,  it is a time of day that I will never tire of and will always enjoy natures spectacle.
