Almost exactly a month ago I was at the Grand Canyon South Rim for some sunrise photography. There was a brief moment after all the gradients and color in the sky had finished where a line of trees were being lit by the warm sunlight just as the sun was about to clear the peaks. I knew instantly the kind of image I wanted when I saw this happening and quickly composed my image.
