Sunrise

Another quick add to the Hokkaido album.  This is a shot of a tree popularly known as the "Philosopher's tree", though I'm not sure of the history behind the name.

Our little band got up before the crack of dawn to drive out here and wait for the sun to rise.  We weren't alone; there were already other photographers also waiting for the sun to rise, some of whom had apparently made the trip several times before.  With mornings like these, it's easy to understand why.

Technical bits: D90 @f16, ISO200, 1/400s
