ISO 100, f/20, 2 seconds, 20mm
 The next few days are supposed to be filled with at least a 60% chance of rain. This is going to give us a bit of relief from the extremely hot temps we've been experiencing. By Thursday, our high is only supposed to be 79 degrees Fahrenheit.
  With the weather system coming in and one exiting out from last night there were some clouds hanging around at sunrise this morning. Instead of trying to drive around and find a spot to shoot this sunrise, I just went to work and relied on or good ole floating dock and lake access.
  There were still a couple of boats tied up from being taken out by employees this past weekend. They added an additional reflection to the image and a neat part of the foreground.
  Just as the sun was starting to peak over the horizon, the clouds formed a "U" like shape centered around it. I placed the end of the dock just under the peaking sun as well to lead the eye to it.
  I placed my 3 stop ND filter on the lens to get a slightly longer exposure and flatten out the water and make a more solid reflection.
