Cotswold Sunrise

Cotswold Sunrise

This is a personal favourite – taken just outside Shipton-under-Wychwood looking East towards the Wychwood Forest (on the horizon on right hand side of the photo) – taken back on 18th July 2013 at about 05:45 – I just stopped by the roadside on the way to the station and chanced upon the grasses that I used in the foreground.

This shot was quite dark, so post processing included pulling back the highlights and shadows – added a gradient for the sky and boosted the colours – quite a bit of noise after the processing, so that was reduced and the resulting image sharpened.  The photograph was then cropped so it would fit onto dual monitors (2560 x 1024px)

Processed with Lightroom 4
