Peach Melba Sunrise

I took a long while trying to decide what to call this - eventually settling on "Peach Melba Sunrise" for the obvious reasoning of the colour of the sky. This was taken early in the day on a very cold morning in February. For anyone who has never visited Cambridgeshire, something we do not have here is mountains, or hills or mounds or mole hills or anything with any sort of gradient. There was a joke advert on TV many years ago about the "Cambridgeshire Mountain Rescue" and how the highest peak it would ever have to scale would be a speed bump! 

One thing the flat open landscapes of Cambridgeshire does allow for is some amazing uninterrupted views of the skies. Be in the right place at the right time or day or year and you can experience some of the best sunrises and sunsets anywhere in the UK. On the morning I captured this image, the sky was bathed in this amazing red, peachy coloured glow for just a few moments as the sun burst through the clouds. I quickly parked up and jumped out at the first spot I could and reeled off several shots. I was lucky to have the silhouettes of the tree and a couple of buildings in the distance. This really helps to create a sense of size and depth to the image. 

The only processing of the image was a slight darkening and sharping of the foreground objects.
