A few minutes after I shot Foggy Sunrise 1, I thought the spectacle was over. Walking around to the right I was able to capture this unexpected bonus shot (lesson: it’s not over until it is over). The cone of sunlight is again interrupted by the shadows of tree branches. Photographing from the side creates more of a conventional sunburst effect. This shot also captures more of the surroundings and conveys the mood of the foggy scene.
