This is an image of the River Arun by the village of South Stoke near Arundel, UK. The shot was taken at Dawn on Wednesday 20th January. This was during a brief very cold spell where even in the south of England the overnight temperature was down to minus 3. The village of South Stoke is very quiet about 2 miles north of Arundel at the end of a narrow backroad. A bridge crossed the river just behind me leading to the footpath on the east side of the river bank and used otherwise only by farm vehicles. Liberal use of chemical handwarmers were required not only for the hands but to wrap around the lens to stop it misting up.

The picture was taken on a Tripod with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20mm lens at 10 mm. 3 raw images 2EV spacing processed with Photomatix Contrast Optimiser setting for a natural look. No more editing was needed apart from a crop and a little Cloning to remove a small lens flare on a blade of grass.
