College Sunrise

An early morning image again this week. I love early mornings. Ok, I don't love them, but I've always been someone who can function before seven in the morning. My typical morning will start around six when the alarm goes off. No lying around with the snooze button pressed several times. Once I hear that noise I am up and out. I've always been that way. I think caffeine goes a long way to help with those early starts and I never seem to have a problem sleeping at night. 

My penchant for early mornings certainly helps when you want to try and catch one of those of wonderful winter sun rises. I'm not saying it's fun to crawl out of bed at 5.30 in the morning with the heating not turned on yet and the temperature around zero degrees. It's also not that fun to wonder around an almost empty city with your hands freezing on the camera shutter button because you forgot your gloves (something I always seem to do). 

Sometimes however it's all worth while. Those moments when you happen to be in the right place at the right time to capture that perfect shot. For me, this weeks  (and next weeks) images were one of those moments. Standing on a bridge over the River Cam with the main buildings that make up Clare College in front of me as the sun begun to show its yawning face from behind them.
