Many of us think that the cold and dull weather in January is a good excuse to give the camera a well earned break !
But actually we are missing some unique opportunities for some very special moments in the camera this season. Another really good reason to keep shooting in winter in Ireland is that you don’t have to get up too early to catch a sunrise.
In the height of the Summer in Ireland you would need to get up as early as 4.30am to prepare to shoot the sun rising. Add to that any walking or driving you might need to do to get to a favoured location and it is certainly going to be an early start!
In Winter however, the earliest you would have to rise to shoot the sunrise in your own back garden is about 8am and as late as 8.30am depending on the horizon in your area !
So now is the time to get that camera out again and make the most of a late rising sun !
