OK, so here it is...the real reason I rose early that morning.
Now the thing about these shots is that they probably represent about 30% of every image on Flickr and we've all seen a million of of 'em.
So yep, yawn, yawn, another bloody dawn shot, especially as it was taken in the same spot as the one below.
But although the aim was to get this (cliche of cliche's) shot. In fact it was actually more about being in the warm fresh air, alone, and enjoying the experience, than the result. So I have pledged to do it more often.
I think about twice a year should be enough.
However, I will, without an ounce of shame, submit this as not A cliche, but THE cliche.
