In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Early Bird.”
It was the Sunday between Christmas and New Year, and many people were sleeping off their seasonal excesses. The cache had been launched the previous evening and we headed off to try our luck at being the first to find it.
Our dedication was not only rewarded with a clear log book, but also with crisp early morning views over the marshes towards Wales. The sun was still low when we took this shadow selfie.
I particularly liked how the light picked up the frost on the marsh reeds, and the subtle differences in the sky colour.
