Nicholas Ham 🐷  I have nothing to offer anyone but my own confusion.

Think less, do more. The thought of getting up at 5am was daunting, the thought of a lack of light was disappointing, the thought of not having a zoom less was less than encouraging, but in the end its not the crippling thoughts of self-doubt; its just about doing it! Managed to grab this shot of Lulworth Cove, as the sun rose this morning.

I'm itching to be out and about, exploring the forest, or the coast, wherever... but the weather is not on our side, so here is a photo from a few weeks back. Fitting really, as @phil_hector and I, enjoy a coffee, while patiently waiting for decent lighting conditions.

Not really one for New Years resolutions, but this year I want to make more of my time and opportunities. No excuses. Went to take a photo down Hengistbury Head, but the conditions weren't right. Someone else was taking photographs where I wanted to shoot. Rather than give up, I decided to make the most of what I had.

A little bit cliché, not quite the sky I was hoping for, but good fun practising long exposures and smokey water.

It was well worth waking up, at the ass crack of dawn, to catch the beautiful colours in this sunrise. Shame the cloud didn't clear enough to light the mountain, but you get what you're given.

Top, middle and bottom of Scafell Pike. Amazing adventure to the Lake District.

Woke up at 05:25 to catch the sun rise over Corfe Castle. Instead we were met with fog and a blown out sky. Still... you win some, you lose some.

Kimmeridge 2/3

The 04:20 alarm was worth catching this sunrise over Clavell Tower this morning.
