Photo Description

Forest Dawn.

This shot was taken as the sun was coming up over my garden. All the pre-dawn colors had faded except for a slight golden glow. The main tree is a Cocos Palm with a Giant Tree Fern, New Zealand Flax and Banana Tree as the secondary elements. There was cloud cover from some low, wispy cumulonimbus and the barometer was reading about 85% humidity and the thermometer was reading 37°C/98°F.
