HATFIELD FOREST, EARLY MORNING – 33

A couple of mornings ago a friend and I got up early ( 4:00 am ) and drove up to Hatfield Forest near Stansted Airport to catch the dawn. And what a morning it was! A mist hung across the whole lake when we arrived, and then the sun rose and the mist struggled to survive – but was eventually dissipated by the increasing temperature.

Here is just a sample of the images we captured.

Hatfield Forest Dawn

These two images were both taken in Hatfield Forest, just after dawn. A little experimental perhaps, both images involving longish exposures and movements of the camera – the first moving the camera up and down to take in the whole height of the trees ( 0.6 sec exposure ), the second zooming the lens during the 0.4 second exposure.
