The story behind this image

A crisp early spring morning, with a light dusting of frost on the ground and the golden light of sunrise spilling across the Cheshire landscape.

I got up very early for a photoshoot before work, spending some time in the pre-dawn light capturing images of mist on the nearby river Dee, before heading back up through the village on my way back to my car.

But this is as far as I got, stopping transfixed at the parish church, its sandstone walls and tower glowing red with the first kiss of the risen sun.

So another hour's worth of photography followed, until the light grew too harsh and the rich sunrise colours faded in the normal light of day.

Then it was a race back to the car and a fast drive to work without any breakfast, just making it to the factory in time to clock on at 8am.

Well worth going hungry for!
