Early Rise.

Early Rise.

Finally, I felt almost awake enough to head out with the tripod at 6am…

Despite the unsociable hours, I really do enjoy this sort of photography. The slower pace involved makes it relaxing, and I get to stretch my legs before I’m stuck in an office for 8 hours. The problem’s going to be maintaining a fresh and interesting angle on the photos.

This was taken in Pollok Park – a truly spectacular park just under half the size of Central Park, New York. It used to be the largest inner-city park in Europe, before the M74 motorway was constructed, clipping off a small chunk. Again its only 3 miles from the heart of the city, and thankfully only 5 minutes from my front door!

Love the colours – the small line of trees look almost like a painting.

6am? Suffering for your art indeed. I was in Glasgow City Centre yesterday at similar silly o’clock – but sans camera.

The colours are amazing. Is the orangey glow light pollution? The tree silhouette is a great subject too.

I have considered getting up at that time, but when I’m still up at this time, getting up at that time is not an option! :o )

Yes… The “sun” is the moon, and the orange glow is the city in the distance. The light pollution is particularly noticeable in the park, as you are surrounded on all sides by city.

I love a tree with that kind of light behind it. Beautiful.
