Blazing late October sunrise in Shenandoah National Park, Virginia, one of the most beautiful sunrises I have ever seen. I incorporated this iconic old snag into the photograph, adding character to the composition. Technique-wise, no HDR was done here and the colors were left as-is. I shot at f/22 for a near-perfect sunstar and used a 3-stop reverse ND filter.
