An hour Before Sunrise

By devlin
well after partying all night Friday we decided to catch the sunrise on Signal Hill Saturday morning got there at about 6.45 Am for a 7.40 AM sunrise this was taken in that time when its starts getting lighter and the sun has yet to come up. Luckily i was carrying my camera, used a old tree stump to stabilize the camera since i wasnt carrying a tripod. Sad, bumped up the ISO a bit to be able to get to a 1/8 shutter speed so that i could hold onto the camera on the tree stump....

Nearly didn't look at this from the thumbnail! and what a treat I would have missed. Excellent composition with the figure looking into the scene. Wonderful cloud shapes and tree silhouette and the lights are perfectly exposed. I might have cropped down to the top cloud bank for a better balance of the 'darks' but this is a superb image. How you managed to keep a steady hand after partying all night defeats me.
