The last sunrise…

Sunrise - Shipton Down - 31st December 2014

…of 2014!

And so we come to the last post of 2014 – this photograph was taken this morning at sunrise on Shipton Down – another cold night, though had warmed up slightly to only -1ºC by this stage, though the wind was biting!

A very light dusting of snow and a frost made the roads a little slippery up here – only frost down at home in the village.

This photograph was made from 3 shots of a 5 shot panorama – Photoshop was having some problems merging them all together, so left 2 shots out in the end.  Applied a graduated filter to the sky to add some drama, a graduated filter to the ground to lighten it a little – some targeted adjustments to the left of the field due to slight merging discolouration (I should have gone manual to take the shots – I blame the biting wind!), cropped to 16×9, sharpened and applied a slight vignette.

Technical details:

Fuji X-E1;18mm(XF 18-55mm f2.8-4 R LM OIS);f/4;1/125s;ISO200; Handheld; 3 shot panorama – Edited in Lightroom and merged in Photoshop.

One thought on “The last sunrise…

  1. Another good picture. It looks like there is snow in the clouds also. Well done. Not sure what the 2 missing shots would have added to it.
