The sun had been visible for less than 20 minutes by the time I took this photo. The light was almost at that point where it starts to become less interesting. This usually seems to happen around 30 minutes or so after sunrise, but can be much longer, stretching several hours in the winter. To make the gate visible leading into the field, required extending the tripod to its maximum height so that the camera could shoot over all the grass in the foreground. The problem with this, is that because the viewfinder is well over six feet off the ground when I do this, I couldn'd actually see to compose the picture. By pre-composing at a lower height, then moving the camera up, I was fortunately able to get the shot I wanted pretty quickly.

Lovely shot but I think it would benefit from a square crop personally.

Thanks for all your comments. I take the point about a square crop which I think I will use when I finally get around to printing this out.
