CRACKED SUNRISE

Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XS, Tamron 28-80 lens @ 28mm, ISO 100, f/11, 1/60 sec.
    I don't know how many times I have been somewhere shooting photos and have given up on the situation, packed up everything, and then on the way back to the car notice another chance at a photo. Today's post is another one of those examples.
  If this shot looks familiar, it is because brother Jim posted a similar HDR shot PARIS LANDING SUNRISE - HDR
  This is another shot from our photo excursion at Paris Landing State Park in Paris, TN from back in July. We were about to give up and go on to a different location when we noticed the row of clouds  hovering above the horizon and a gorgeous red sun sitting right in between them. We quickly unpacked went to work.
  We were both shooting the sunrise right in front of this tree stump for several minutes before noticing this interesting crack on the one side of it that fit the sun and it's reflection on Kentucky Lake perfectly.
   I also tried to process this as an HDR but without the success that Jim did. I actually like the silhouette of the tree stump just like it is.
