I see this beautiful sunrise almost everyday as I drive by this gorgeous tree on my way to work. I thought of this shot when I read the challenge description.
I had to bribe my model with buying her breakfast in order to get her out of bed at the horrible hour of 5:30 Am on a Sunday morning.

We were chasing the clouds the entire trip to the site. My daughter called me crazy when I tore out of the car, running across the field screaming " Hurry we have to beat the light"

I hate basic editing sometimes. Not today

I love this shot

Thanks for looking

Coley


Thanks everyone for all of the votes and comments
Here is an outtake. I could not use this because of the ladder my model jumped from, was in the shot.

Glorious. Sunset shots have been way overdone, of course. But this sunset shot has an unusual depth and richness to the colors that makes it just fantastic. :) I get a thrill looking at those vibrant peachy hues intertangled in the tree branches. Lovely.

Nice coloring. Highlights are a bit blown, and the cropping is a bit too tight on the left. 6
