It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

Great photos mate, well just saying great sells them short. Were they taken with a normal digital camera or do you have some expensive flashy thing?

A Nikon D3100 DSLR with 18-55 and 55-200 lenses. No filters. A couple of frames need slight adjustment of the levels in Aperture and another couple had the silhouettes sharpened. No trickery. We get some amazing sunrises and sunsets up here, but this morning's was one of the best. I spotted it out the window as I was getting our boys ready for school, abandoned them, grabbed my wellies and camera, and sprinted for our hilltop. It was all over in 10 minutes.
