The Peak District is one of the most beautiful areas I’ve found in England and luckily it’s only an hour drive from my home. I woke up early one day and decided to attempt some sunrise photos over at Lady Bower Reservoir. The colorful splendor of the sunrises and sunsets here are astounding. They would make the perfect backdrop for an engagement or a “trash the dress” shoot.  For those who may not have heard of them: “trash the dress”, also known as “fearless bridal” or “rock the frock”, is a style of wedding photography that contrasts elegant clothing with non-traditional environments. It is generally shot in the style of fashion or glamour photography. I have some examples on my Pinterest board: Trash the Dress Ideas.

My favorite shades, in sunrises and sunsets, are violet and orange hues. In order to get these photos I had to use longer shutter speeds than normal. The last three shots were a full two seconds long! I’m not sure if many of you have taken any shots at two seconds, so for reference: most photos taken with a longer shutter speed than 1/30 of a second will come out shaky looking.  I used an off camera trigger in order to avoid camera shake, which makes a photo look blurry.

I hope you all enjoy these sunrise shots as much as I enjoyed witnessing them. I highly suggest a visit, whether you’re local or not.
