On this morning I was racing to reach a location in time for sunrise. I was dripping with sweat and my heart rate monitor was screaming at me to slow down. Just a minute before this photo was taken, I glanced over my shoulder at the horizon and realized the sun was rising now. I didn't have time to make it to my location and so needed to get my camera and tripod out immediately. To my left was this field of flowers so I grabbed my gear and dropped at their edge. The light was stunning creating a moment of incredible beauty that I may never forget. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.
