On top of the earth.

Dave ZdanowiczTrips / Locations

In my 3 odd years doing photographing landscapes I’ve only been lucky enough to witness a cloud inversion a couple of times. It truly is a wonderful sight to witness and certainly adds something special to the pictures.

The morning at Mam Tor in Derbyshire was one of the greatest sunrises I have ever witnessed. The colours in the sky and the bright orange glow from the sun were majestic. It was one of those mornings where you could point the camera in any direction and come out with a half decent shot. The sky was bright and intense so it was essential I used a Graduated filter to help control the exposure.

 

Heres the gear I used for the trip.

  • Vanguard ALTA PRO 283CT  and BBH-300
  • Canon 6D
  • Canon 16-35 f4 Lens (Which is mainly used when I am doing long exposures with my Hoya filters)
  • Tokina 16-26 f.2.8 – Brilliant for those sharp crisp shots and low light photography.
  • Tamron 70-200
  • Hoya ND100/ND1000 Filters.
  • Formatt Hitech Firecrest 0.9 Softgrad

Here are a few of the shots I captured on the morning.
