Abandoned Palm Tree At Sunrise

This morning was a great morning for a walk and was perfectly chosen by Anthony and his family who joined me for a Private Nature Walks. We saw and heard plenty of things as we walked my now famous Eagle Ridge route and yes we even spotted a Short Toed Eagle albeit very briefly. Of course, the Bee-Eaters were everywhere and to my amazement, I even spotted some new tunnel holes on my land, more about this soon!

However, whilst most were sleeping, I actually was up before sunrise this morning and decided to head out to a nearby Palm Tree that is next to a ruin that has been left to nature to capture the sun as it appeared above the ridge.

Twighlight had just started when I set off this morning to a local ridge that I’d scouted yesterday. Setup the tripod and camera (D810, AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8 and “Cheap as Chips” Remote) with about 30 minutes until the sun was to appear above the serra ridges to the East.

I sat and watched a some stunning colours before the sun started to poke above the mountains and walked away with this shot.

In the foreground is my local village, São Marcos da Serra preparing for another warm October day.

I was up at Dawn to get ready to photograph the Red Squirrels in the Yorkshire Dales this weekend and looked out of the window to a stunning sunrise with this Ram sitting on a ridge, I couldn’t resist a silhouette shot.
