Sunrise in Fog

I was out early one morning photographing birds and came around a corner to find this amazing sunrise out of the fog. I had a 600mm lens on a beanbag over my car window. I had to maneuver my car to get the right angle. Just a quick grab shot and the light/colors were over.

Simple, dramatic and beautiful.

Agree with Harley. I like very much the smoothness of the light and color transitin from the brightest to the darkest parts.

Really love the mood this image sets off for me. Great detail in the sun and just a hint of an outline for the trees in the foreground. Love the horizontal striations going through the sun as well. What a neat scene.

Very beautiful ‘grab shot’ David! Sometimes those turn out the best! Don’t overthink beauty right in front of you.

Nice and simple.
Love it.

Absolutely beautiful. Love the color transition through the photo. Really like it.

I couldn’t say it any better than Harley did.

This is a matter of pure serendipity, a lot of the strong impact of this image derives from the perspective of using a 600mm lens. Good thing you went out to shoot birds that morning :grin:
