I took this photograph a couple of years ago, about a week after midsummer’s day when the days where long and my enthusiasm for getting up early was likewise at its peak. I must have left home some time around 4.30 am as I had already taken a few pictures before this one, which was time stamped 4.50 am. Although it quickly turned into a glorious morning once the mist lifted, it’s the misty haze and cool blue morning light that I like about the this picture. And the pale orange glow that’s emerging over the hill. And, if you look closely you can see the outline of one or two of the houses on hillside.
