On yesterday morning’s sunrise power walk, the sun broke the horizon just as I was 20 minutes into my walk.

The landscape for this shot wouldn’t have been my first choice, but it was all that I had, given that the sun was going to quickly disappear into the overcast winter sky.

Despite the surroundings, the diamond shape of the sunrise glow made the shot worthwhile.

“O, Sunlight! The most precious gold to be found on Earth.”
