Morning has broken

F9.5, 1/180, ISO100, 19mm (HDR)

I arrived at this pond, just minutes after the sun had broken over the horizon. I went low down to include this old dead tree as a feature without losing the magnificence of the beautiful sky

    I already saw this one while visiting your photo gallery the last time but didn't have the time to comment this one. This is a gorgeous scenery. The light of the rising sun is just awesome. The clouds make the sky look interesting and add someting extra. good choice to go low down to include that old tree as a foreground object. good exposure as well....even the darks still have enough details. Godd capture and well composed. i love this one. good job.

    Amazing, what little moves can change the whole energy of the picture. Although I prefer the symbol of mankind and the change of a decade:
    A New Dawn for a New Year
    A New Dawn for a New Year

    I think this shot is one of the best sun risers I have seen. The extraordinary detail in the front and the exposure thereof is absolutely magnificent.
    Well done!!!
