Narborough Sunrise

On Saturday I visited Norfolk Wildlife Trust Narborough Rail line. I discovered this location earlier this year while looking for butterflies. Was asked if I had a picture of this location which was "Atmospheric". Only had macro photos of butterflies and bugs, it gave me the inspiration and determination to go out early and capture a sunrise. Atmospheric, to me means sunrise, sunset and mist etc. 

The weather forecast was overcast which was worrying. Complete flat cloud would have been a disaster, by contrast no clouds would be equally disappointing and boring. Clouds provide interest during sunrise / sunset as they change colour.

I arrived at Narborough with not much time to find a spot, ideally I should have arrived a bit earlier, took my time to get up. Found myself running trying not to miss the sunrise. I found a suitable and only location near the end looking over the farmland. 

Taking plenty of images while the sun was waking up. Settled on the above picture, a panorama made up of 4 portrait images wide using a method called HDR to ensure the image was exposed correctly. The file size is almost 60 megabytes, a 70 megapixel image. 

Visiting the same place many times allows me to familiarise myself with the location so I know where to go when I want a particular image, Narborough for example is good for butterflies and bugs, I have also seen fungi growing in the grass, however not this trip which was disappointing for this time of year.
