I need to get outside early more often. I took this picture last weekend as I walked along Lake Newport. As everyone else slept, I felt like I had the sunrise all to myself.
I loved the way the sunlight illuminated the hanging willow leaves, so I was sure to include them in the image. I warmed up the image slightly in Lightroom, and cropped it into a pano to simplify it.
