My initial plan was to photograph the sunrise at the Old Field Lighthouse but the gates were locked and there was no access to the site. Dejected I headed home and the thought of missing this sunrise was killing me. Maybe a quarter of a mile from the house (after an hour's drive to and from the lighthouse), there is a church with a huge parking lot that backs up to some woods, with an eastern exposure.
Jumping out of the SUV and setting up at lighting speed, I dashed into the woods. My plan was for a silhouette and the beginning of sunrise and nothing more. Exposure was one test shot, underexpose by two stops, dropped the camera into bulb and usde hyper critical focusing. Thank goodness I remembered my flashlight to see what I was doing and the iPone provided the stopwatch for the required (guesstimated exposure).
What started out as a no go situation turned into a gem with lot of luck.

You have a great photo.

The exposure is right making a creative composition.

Sometimes not being able to get the shot you set out to get makes you look at alternatives that give suprising results for the day.
