I got up early yesterday morning to beat the sun up and to get some sunrise shots. I got a few more typical shots in a brief window of just a few minutes as the sun turned the cloud cover red. But within minutes the sun arose over the cloud cover, allowing only peeks of sunlight, but giving great nuance to the sky. A long exposure helped complete the mood. It's not a typical sunrise shot, but it is one that I am very proud of.
