A Familiar Connection by Jacob-Routzahn A Familiar Connection by Jacob-Routzahn
On a short trip back to my hometown, I knew I wouldn't have an ample amount of time to get out and shoot. So, the first morning of my return, I arose before the sun and set out to Busch Wildlife. A local conservation area that I have been going to since I was able to cast a fishing pole. Also, an area my buddy :iconbldn333: shoots quite often.

Remembering Brad mention that the lakes had been a little low, I decided to check out a lot of lakes, but settled on the largest lake of them all, lake 33. When I arrived, there was a layer of late season fall leaves coating the shoreline.

Even though the clouds and forecast claimed rain was immanent, I stuck around to see what the sunrise would do. For about 5 minutes, this little light show illuminated the horizon just above the trees.

I was pretty tickled to see that, especially considering I never had another chance to get out and shoot while there.

Leaves in the foreground really make your photo stand out from all of the other identical shots of sunsets. Lovely :heart:

The leaves in the foreground, the reflection in the water, the back lit trees, and the sun rise create a lot of complexity and depth to the image. That with the colors and wonderful light make this a beautiful image.
