Backlight Mountain Sunrise, from Calvi, Corsica, France

During our recent stay in Corsica, we had a wonderful hotel in Calvi with a magnificient view towards the mountains, resulting in not having to get up _that_ early, just early enough to be ready at sunrise. :)

 

Since you look towards the sun, you are facing backlight challenges. In this particular case, clouds and mist were helping with adding light to otherwise darker scenery, while I additionally exposed in a way to keep as much highlights as possible, resulting in a nice foreground silhouette at the same time.
