Great beauty. I see It from my window on some days. It’s a gut feeling that comes from deep down somewhere. I am humbled to see such a sight and to witness nature in its glory. Have I gotten that across to you?
Digital cameras – are there film ones left? – can still be fooled by a scene. They will under or over expose the scene in low light such as dawn. My trick is to meter down at the horizon. It lowers the exposure to enhance the rich orange and reds of the dawn sky. Pointing upward gives too little exposure. And the camera cannot focus. There are no sharp lines. So pointing the focus at the tree line gives an edge for the camera to focus. It is a matter of bending the camera software to your need. Meanwhile I did not have to waste time switching to manual mode.
