This photo was captured on February 18, 2012 at 6:21 am. The light is nearly always good around sunrise, even if I don’t encounter the dramatic cloudscapes I favor. The exception (from my viewpoint) is those mornings when the land is blanketed by a dense cloud or fog.
Alteration: I spotted out a sheet of plywood lying beside the asphalt trail in the right foreground. I generally try to avoid making alterations of that sort to photos, but it simply didn’t look right to me.
Metadata: Lumix G1, 14-45mm lens at 45mm, ISO 100, f/16, 1.3 seconds.
