I pitched up in a corner of Cook’s Fields, next to the Lynchcombe sycamore trees, and overlooking the Deerleap field. The steep southern edge of the Mendip Hills actually faces south west. So for most of the year the sun rises behind the hills. But in mid-winter you have the best chance of catching a great sunrise. You still need to keep watching the weather forecast for a good morning.
You need clear skies with a high layer of cloud to act as a canvas for those orange and red colours we are hoping for.
As it was, it was not the best sky. But a fun way to spend the morning. Don’t forget to put on a lot of warm clothes!
Another beautiful morning across Somerset.
These pictures were taken just before the current lockdown – it just took me a while to get around to publishing.
