Continuing the theme of winter scenes on the chalk streams, it is sometimes worth getting up early (really early if you have to drive for an hour and a half first) to capture dawn in the the winter. This needs a little planning and faith in the weather forecasts. The sun rising after a freezing night creates wonderful light with the mist coming off the water. This image was shot in January from a public footpath along the Itchen. I am standing in a foot of water to get the right angle for the shot. While my camera club members might disagree, I rather like the effect of the multi-coloured glare on the lens.
