Amanda Norfolk - Godshill, New Forest National Park

'Morning Glow through the trees. Love this golden sunrise view from Godshill ridge. Just caught the sun after it came up over the ridge in the background. Love how the glow of the sun rays, is caught through the trees, creating a silhouette view. This is a popular focal point to watch the sunrise and a wonderful area of the New Forest to walk.’
