August's photo of the month demonstrates the beauty of the natural world as a copse of trees near Malham sees the day's first glow of the sun from out of the mist.
I've always found trees deceptively difficult to photograph. The difficulty being how do you get something that hasn't been done a million times! Being in the right place at the right time always helps.
I saw a wonderful picture on flickr, and the photographer was kind enough to give me the location. It's about 2 miles south of Malham, an isolated copse of trees, behind which the sun rises at this time of year.
Add some fortuitous dawn mist and Bob's your uncle.
My favourite tree photograph is this one by Harry Callaghan, once famously and cruelly described as 'Almost a Great Photographer' - see it here.
