I set out to the edge of the Blyde River Canyon on a misty summer morning and set up my camera on the edge about 45 minutes before sunrise. Pre-dawn light revealed nothing but flat gray skies and sunrise was a big dissapointment. I decided to wait it out and see if anything happens as the sun climbed higher in the sky behind the clouds. It took almost 3 hours of waiting, but eventually the clouds built into a mild storm and a few gaps opened allowing some sunlight in to create this dramatic scene.
