Sunrise Under a Tree

This was taken just a few moments before the sun hit the horizon and came into full view. Usually, I use this time to try out a few different compositions and what works and what doesn't , as you can be left with just a few minutes of the best light once the sun rises. In this case, it was an even shorter period of time, as the sun very quickly went into the low cloud within about two mintues of rising.

 

With this shot, I wanted to emphasise the character of the tree. There were some branches covered in leaves, and others that appeared to be dead. I suppose this tree won't last for much longer before falling down, but must have been standing already for deacdes. Therefore, I felt it was my duty to try to get a decent shot of it.
