    I've tried to make more of an effort to get out with the camera this year. Captured mainly sunrises and have had some very early starts.

    Here are some of my best shots so far. All taken with my D750 / 24-70mm f/2.8G.

    Hope you like them.

    Thanks :)

    Got really lucky with the weather on that one. Had no idea it would be so misty when I set off that morning.

    Cheers. That one was chosen by flickr as their 'hero of the week' shot and was featured as their cover image across their digital platforms on flickr, Facebook, Instagram and on Google+.

    Thank you :)

    Last night I got a new well known follower on my flickr account:

    Quite fitting for this thread, as it was watching Thomas Heaton on YouTube that inspired me to get out more. He's said in a few of his videos that learning to operate a camera is easy, the hard part is getting up and going out with it.

    I've really enjoyed my early morning shoots this year. I've seen some awesome sunrises and usually had the locations entirely to myself :)

    Was just going to say not only are your photographs stunning but your commitment to being in the right place at the right time is admirable! It's a,azing how the right lighting can life a photo from good to outstanding.

    Cheers :) Yes, as we all know, it's all about the light. Making the effort to get myself out of bed has certainly paid off for me a few times this year. The light can be fantastic very early in the morning.

    Shots 1,2 & 9 were all taken at sunrise on a recent trip to Dorset. It was a great feeling knowing I had a shot in the bag on those mornings before most people had even woken up. I was able to enjoy the rest of my day without worrying I was missing photo opportunities. Even without the photography, it was a fantastic experience watching the light change and the sun come up in such a spectacular location.

    I was in that same area of Dorset last year with a baby so early morning Photography trips were not on the agenda! It's a beautiful area and you've certainly done it justice. Your shot from Bamford edge is also interesting to me being local I've seen and taken hundreds of pictures in that area but not seen many from that viewpoint.
