We usually start out when it is still dark and watch the sun come up about half way through our walk.
But, when it is especially cold, we often start out a little later. This particular morning the sun was just coming up as we stepped outside. I have taken a version of this tree in the sunrise many, many times. I do not ever get tired of doing it. There was a little fog hanging around which served to enhance the colors of the rising sun.
I really like the shape of this tree with all of its flowing, leafless branches.
Just perfect for me to play.
I think this would make a great starting point for a composite image. Mmmm...or maybe...just like it is with just a few enhancements.
I wonder what gold leaf would look like on some of the colorless sections of the tree trunk and branches?
