The Shropshire and Beyond team had an early morning start in Shrewsbury this week.
It was the first time we had attempted to photograph sunrise over the county town so we weren't too sure what to expect, but we had a good idea of what we wanted to achieve.
Weekend mornings see quite a lot of rowing boats on the River Severn and, with a low sun, you can produce striking silhouettes of rowers. This is illustrated the first image below.
Early morning light on Wyle Cop (image two) lends Shrewsbury a very Dickensian look. The sunrise picks out the half-timbered buildings, illuminating them with a golden light and casting appealing shadows.
The following two photographs were taken in the Quarry - a silhouette of the tower of St Chad's Church and an early morning runner amid an avenue of trees.
The final image is a view of English Bridge over the River Severn with the background slightly obscured by mist.
Equipment used: Nikon D800, 24-70mm, 70-200mm, Fuji X-T1, 55-200mm
