Every morning I go out to feed the horses. Usually it's near sunrise and there is no telling what the sky will reveal. One thing I know is that if there is broken clouds covering the sky chances are the sunrise will produce a scene worthy of recording. Another thing you can count on is if you don't have your camera with you the moment you think it's spectacular it will be significantly different by the time you retrieve it. Sometimes it's for the better, but more times than not it goes the other direction.
Such was the case this morning. As I was walking to the pasture I looked east as the sun began to show it's face and I knew I had missed the shot. Not to say I don't like this photo, but what was left behind because the camera was in the house, was arguable better. Be prepared!
