Yellow head

First and Last Light

When taking photographs, I tend to favour the fading light of dusk or the early light of dawn. Dark streets framed by the pre-dawn deep blue sky is an especially effective combination. I have been known to get up absurdly early in the summer, like three in the morning for example, just to get the one shot I had an idea for.

I'm lucky in that the area where I live offers superb photo opportunities. Both the canal, the railway and the brutal ringroad flyover, pass through streets largely untouched since Victorian times, creating strange scenic possibilities.
