I'm the first to admit I am not a 'morning person'! I'm not sure I ever really thought about it until I had children and suddenly those lazy mornings of just getting yourself ready for the day, vanish into distant memory amid the chaos of, at first, nappies, feeding and generally surviving, and then later, getting yourself and everyone else up and dressed and fed and out of the door in time for work/nursery/school!
So whilst it's not the most obvious thing for me to do of a morning, I recently d-r-a-g-g-e-d (literally!) myself out of bed before dawn and took myself off to RSPB Broadwater Warren to spend a morning trying to photograph all that it has to offer.
Despite studying the weather forecast almost hourly the day before and deciding that the predicted clear skies would make an excellent sunrise backdrop, I didn't pull back the curtains until I had pretty much got ready and it was only then that the foggy landscape made itself apparent! However, I was up, AND dressed, AND ready with a thermos of tea, so I headed on out.
