What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? When I first passed by this sunrise scene, the sun was much higher in the sky and its reflection in the lake much brighter. Since I wanted a picture with the sun just barely above the background hilltop as I expected that its reflection would be muted and the foliage better back lit, I returned early to the park two days later to make this picture.

Can you tell us about any special equipment or techniques that you used? Canon 6D, 24-105mm lens at f/8 and 24mm, 200 ISO, manual exposure at two stops under indicated correct meter reading. Tripod mounted. Perhaps use of f/16 or so would have produced more distinct "rays" on the sun and its reflection, but the understated rays in this picture seem to work.
