Sunrise Staple Tor by Alex37 Sunrise Staple Tor by Alex37
This is probably a little different to some of my work, its a little less organised! I scouted this composition out last night when the light wasnt so good and dragged myself out of bed early this morning for the 50min trek in time for sunrise.

I had high hopes for the cirrus clouds overhead, but they came to nothing due to the cloud over eastern England. Once the sun had risen I had about 20 minutes of really wonderful light.

This is the first serious landscape I have taken with my new 5D. The camera is outstanding, I am really happy with it. At the moment the greatest challenge I am facing is imagining the shots before taking them. Full frame really is hugely wider than a crop camera but at the moment I am still imagining shots in the focal lengths I had available to me before. I actually had to retake this shot when I realised my tripod leg was in the frame, which has never happened before!

I'm going to have to disagree with Jake, I think the foreground interest is large but it's framed nicely and nothing is distracting and with such beautiful it's a wonderful shot :)

Beautiful light and a good scene but way too much foreground imo.
