Daybreak, Upper Godney
First light over Upper Godney, on the Somerset Levels south of Wedmore; 9 Jan 2015.

A grove of poplars, uncommon hereabouts and rather a landmark; a telephone line; and the bright windows of a farmhouse in which folk are up and about, getting ready for work on this cold and breezy winter’s morning.

D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 300mm; 25,600 ISO; Dfine 2.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    First light. the best time of the day. 🙂
    With the longer days and earlier mornings the sun is up way before I leave work now, but if I look out of a window in the right direction at tea break I can just see the sky turning from black to navy. 😀

    Adrian..I like your photo lots: the lovely poplars, its simplicity , the blue colour, the composition make it most attractive photo.

      I’m glad you like it, Paula, thank you! I hadn’t considered its simplicity but you’re right – basically, its all black, apart from the sky and those windows. I could probably have made those house lights less orange but they would then have seemed less warm, welcoming and homely I think. Adrian


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
