    The sunhit portion is a bit hot.....but this was dramatic enough I thought it was worth posting. I probably should have taken two separate exposures, but the temperature was in the single digits and my fingers were freezing from taking a few shots earlier. I could barely press the shutter much less tweak the tiny buttons for adjustment (such are the perils of a landscape photographer!).

    Taken yesterday on the banks of the Blue River north of Silverthorne, Colorado.


    Panasonic FZ5
    Focal length: 11.6mm (35mm equivalent: 70mm)
    Exposure time: 0.0008 s (1/1300)
    Aperture: f/6.3
    ISO equiv.: 80
    Manfrotto 676B monopod

    I think it's great!
    Really shows that early morning cold when the bright sun first comes up.

    No one's gonna be puzzled over why you posted this one! ;) Gorgeous image. You did a wonderful job here capturing that steam rising from the water. (I'm guessing that's the phenomenon here) Great job! :D

    Very dramatic, my choice would have been to hide the sun behind the tree and just get the rays, but still awesome shot.
