WELCOME TO THE NOVEMBER 2018 issue of Digital SLR Photography. There are many benefits that digital technology has brought to photography that makes capturing fantastic images far easier than in the days of film.

I visit this town regularly so I knew what composition worked best for a winter sunrise, with the chapel in the foreground and the sunrise behind. What surprised me on this morning was the fog, which I'd never seen here before.
