Dawn is my favourite time to take pictures. I seem to switch on in that morning light, my whole body tingling with excitement as I head out early after a bowl of warm porridge, knowing that my family is all wrapped up warmly inside, still sleeping. But oh it is so lovely to be out there where things are quiet, waking up slowly, watching the sun suffuse nature with warmth, enjoying that light as it changes from silver to gold. That last scene from Pride and Prejudice is one of my favourites, watching the couple glow in the light after their walk across the misty gold fields.
As I snapped away in the dawn a few weeks ago, I didn't feel my toes getting cold until they were numb but I knew that when I went home my Mr Darcy would be there with a warm cup of coffee for me. I wonder if *reina* found her Mr Darcy as she looked across this field. It looks like the perfect light to me, just right for finding the romance.
I love watching day break. What's your favourite time to capture romantic light, to share some of the romance? Try setting your alarm early one morning and head out to explore that dawn light. You might even find your Mr Darcy...
