Pic Of The Week (34/2012) – The Perfect Sunrise

Early morning on Lake Belmeken in the Rila Mountains

Sunrise over Lake Belmeken
Sunrise over Lake Belmeken, Rila Mountains, Bulgaria (elevation 1,960 mtr)

After spending a chilly night on an open fire, I mobilized my tired bones early enough to catch the fantastic light of the ‘Golden Hour’ and managed to get a series of shots as the sun rose over the lake. This is the only one where the rays of the sun are so pronounced – nature’s work not Photoshop!
