15 - Morning on the Mountain

Another morning on the mountain. Being there and watching the sun rise gets quite addictive. I had a morning and an evening session, the morning with a wonderful sunrise and the evening with a mediocre sundown. Let’s talk about the morning.

This image was shot after the immediate stress of sunrise, of not wanting to miss one magic moment, was over and I had time to experiment with the warm light of the new day on some very old wood.

Compositionally the small dark tree plays the role of counterpoint to the big chunk of wood to the left. It struggles to do so and in hindsight I wish it was a tad more dominant.
