Sunrise Sequence

This morning I was keeping an eye out for the appearance of the sun as I drove down deserted gravel roads. The sky was disappointingly clear but it looked like a few clouds might gather in the east to greet the new day; there’s just no predicting the vagaries of the atmosphere!

I drove up a hill and found myself on what used to be upland prairie, a broad expanse of plain with a good view of the eastern horizon. Ah! Clouds had appeared and the sunrise was beginning. I parked right in the middle of the road, got out of the car, and positioned myself next to a frosty hedge corner-post, a handy steady-rest for the camera. This is a sequence which took just a few minutes to unfold:

I wonder if anyone else saw it?

    Neat how the glowing disk becomes increasingly visible through the cloud cover.
