Dawn Chorus – Part Two, Early Morning Mist

Llantrisant common is just up the road from where I live and it’s a place that you can get a real sense of being well out of anything approaching urban, and that’s despite an Industrial estate being on its doorstep.

I was fortunate to catch it on a near perfect morning on my dawn chorus walks last week. Low lying mist gave a very real sense of early morning and transformed the common into an ethereal otherworldly place.

There can be a tendency to ‘lift’ images during post production and thus lighten artificially the time of day. I try to hold as close to what I felt the original scene was like at the time of taking the photograph. If they’re perceived to be a little dark and lacking shadow detail it because it was like that.

  1. … and thanks again

  2. Nice photo’s Tim, love the mist ones. I have fascination with light and the start of the day and the end of the day. Love the different depths of the trees in the distance.

  3. Thanks Rachael and great to see your work and website!
