[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
An Early morning rise, a quick splash of water in my face and I was on my way for a morning shoot on top of the hill near Conceicao. The clouds were heavy and I didn't expect to make many good photos. Some I already posted here on TL, but this one was still lingering on my hard drive.

As mentioned, the clouds were heavy and there wasn't much of a sunrise to work with. Some light was still able to burn through some of the clouds, giving color the horizon.

Hello Niek, the clouds look so heavy! But you managed to capture the early morning sun trying to break through.It must have felt good to be out in the open experiencing this.
Very good depth of field.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Niek

Superb lighting, and I can feel the weight of the clouds.

Hi Niek,
A dramatic shot -it looks like a volcano erupting and is very similar to an island volcano beside Auckland -Rangitoto

Indeed an early morning rise and a great morning rise-work
what a beautiful colours and details well done NIEK BOUWEN

Excellent shot, cloudy but the fading sun in the BG captured at the right moment is wonderful!

Hi Niek,
Incredible natural light with such contrasting factors. Great depth.

Hi Niek,
What makes this photo is precisely those heavy clouds blocking the light, with that little thread of light passing under.
A moody shot.
