Dawn at Pilsley by Samantha Wragg

Cold weather and long nights can make it harder to GetOutside, but it also makes it much easier to catch some spectacular sunrises. Here's one from Derbyshire, taken by travel blogger Samantha Wragg.

This photo is from Pilsley - the town near Chesterfield, not the identically named village near Chatsworth House! The naked trees create dramatic silhouettes in the dawn light, and the frosty ground and mist add a slightly unworldly air to the landscape. Getting this sort of image takes careful timing, as the mist tends to vanish fairly quickly even in winter.

Samantha is a travel blogger and writer who loves exploring Britain and further afield. Along with her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Alfie, she’s often out and about in the Peak District. You can see more of Samantha’s photos on Instagram or follow her blog at cocobutterblog.co.uk.
