How I Got This Shot: The terrain dictated the framing of this shot as there was a thick brush to the L. Stood where I could just catch the sunrise in the corner of the photo. I used a tripod. I’ve found that 50% of a good shot is simply being there to catch the action. I arrived about 20 min before sunrise was supposed to take place and just kept shooting. When the sun finally did start coming up, she came up fast. I also shot this with the White Balance set to “shade” mode to provide a bit more warmth to the color but that is all.
