This morning I was up at 2:20am and standing in a Dorset wheat field by 4.30am. Sunrise was 5:08, but the sun actually rose over the brow of the hill at exactly 5:30am, just after a reddish/orange glow.

Within about one minute it was all over: too much fierce sunlight to take a decent photograph of this beautiful Dorset landscape.

I was back home again and all tucked up in bed by 7am.
