Getting up for sunrise always has its risks of getting skunked. At least sunset one can tell what the clouds are doing. Getting up at 445...it's dark. Getting down to our location we were relieved to see it was relatively clear out to the east. Timing this for the solstice means a small window to capture an image with the sun in this position. As the sun came up the color exploded. After clicking like crazy for about 15 min I wanted to do a panorama...of course. This image was INCREDIBLY difficult to pull off. 4 vertical images make up the stitch but each of the 4 had 4 shots to control the dynamic range and flare. All combined by hand. The result of which is this little slice of sunrise heaven.

Happy Summer :)

So, this is a 4 in 1 photo???? Hand combined?? You've gotta be kidding, or maybe my english is just toooo poor hahahaha.

Btw, thank you very much for your recommendation, that website is full of outstanding photos (NPN...which I supposed would be Nature Photographers, am I right?) ;)
