Rather special sunrise, here on the manor this morning.
If circumstance were different, I 'd love to drive out and get some other foregrounds for them, but I will be good.
I'd love to get a picture with the sun rising directly behind St Buryan Church, (can be seen towards the bottom left in the image below.)

One of my lock-down "worthwhile time use" strategies is to learn new Photoshop techniques. Not cheating ones, just enhancement ones. Though there is a fine line...

As I cannot get out, due to a poorly pooch, to get new snaps to work with, I'm redoing some old shots with the new skills learned.

I'm sure you've told us; but what kind of camera are you using? Do you have a number of lenses or do you stick with one?

I use an old and battered Canon 5D mkIII, with two lenses, 17-40 mm wide angle for landscapes, and a 70-300 mm for wildlife/sports.

Thinking of buying a Sony A7R III in the not too distant future.

I think I see Jesus Christ peeking through a hole in the clouds in the distance.

It looks more like Jesus wearing a sea turtle on his head.
