The color in the sunrise was not supposed to be in that direction. All my planning and research indicated that the sunrise color would be on the clouds to the west, over the Eastern Sierra Mountains. As often happens, however, Nature does what Nature wants, and the clouds were further east than forecast. This caused the sunrise light to simply explode in the east as the clouds caught fire beneath a deeply blue sky. Finally accepting that the sunrise wasn’t going to behave as I expected it to, I grabbed my camera and tripod, which were positioned for the composition I had been planning since the previous day, pointing west, and ran to get in position near this large group of boulders to shoot towards the east. The light didn’t last much longer as the sun rose over the horizon, but I had managed to capture the glory.
