Behind the scenes on Mam Tor.
A couple of weeks ago I travelled to a very popular area in the Peak District to photograph the sunrise. Given the weather forecast, I knew I had a good chance of witnessing a cloud inversion - where overnight, cold air sinks to the bottom of a valley, condenses and is trapped by a layer of warmer air.
Since posting some images, I've had a lot of people ask about the how I made the shots so I thought I'd post an image from my phone to show you what it was like.
I could go in to lots of detail about camera settings, filters and other equipment but if the truth be told, that won't help you that much.
The single most important piece of advice I can share with you is recognising the value of PERSEVERANCE. It's funny how easy many people think this is - I was (probably still am) one of them. It's the easiest thing to think "Yep, I can do this", and then do it again and again and again, when in actual fact it takes serious commitment. Ideas like "I'll just do that tomorrow" simply don't work in the business of nature photography, especially when considering the infrequent events or chance encounters that punctuate this genre of photography.
I'll concede that a healthy dollop of luck usually features in the best of our images but that always comes second to being out there, exploring the world around us, researching our subjects and persevering with our aims.
Now, time to go back to bed! 😉
