It took me a long time to figure out what to do with this image, but I finally arrived at something I'm happy with. I met up with landscape Wunderkind David Thompson to shoot this location at sunrise. While struggling to find this spot in the dark David helpfully got a text message from one of his friends -- at 4am. She saved us missing sunrise by giving us directions. Things were looking promising that morning but the light never really quite got through the clouds. What you see here lasted for a few minutes. Fun times.
