A crisp, winter sunrise and a beautiful location - what a wonderful way to start a Sunday morning photo walk!
Leaving a nice cosy bed at 5.30am and scraping ice off the car windscreen may not be everyone's idea of early morning fun. But for me the opportunity for stunning nature photography was worth it, although my husband wasn't so keen.
After an "interesting" forty five minute drive, along frosty, narrow roads, we neared our destination - RSPB Nene Washes in Cambridgeshire.
The sun peeped above the horizon, spreading a beautiful golden light over the flat landscape. Hoping the winter sunrise would last, we rose over a humpback bridge to see the glorious vista open out below us. It took my breath away!
