Templecombe Sunrise

Its that time of year again when the sunrises as I drive, or even better cycle, to work.

Plan B

I drew up a plan for today… get up at 5:30am, go to the small village of Hardway and photograph the sun rising behind St Alfreds’s Tower with an old oak tree in the foreground.  This idea had been in my head for a couple of years and today the weather could be perfect.

Of course, this was the plan.   Sadly I got up to late, so instead I stayed on the main road and was lucky to be at Tower Hill north of Templecombe just as the sun came over the horizon.
