It was April and despite the onset of Spring, the early morning was bitterly cold. Tom and I had got up early to shoot some material for a promotional video for my business, Paul Fears Photography. We wanted to video the sun rising behind the dramatic Caerphilly Castle, which is the largest of many fantastic fortresses in South Wales. He was using my Canon 5D and so I was slumming it with my Canon 1000D. As he filmed, I setup up the camera on a tripod and captured the unfolding dawn and rising of the sun from behind Caerphilly Castle. The clouds played a big part in the composition, especially with the reflections of the sun. The starburst was an added bonus.
