The light at sunrise is not always all about the sun and clouds in the east. Sidelighting can be quite lovely and exhibits a depth that is not as evident when looking directly at the light source. This view, seen on these pages many times, shows mist-filled valleys and overlapping hills that would be deeply shadowed when looking into the sunrise. The light at this angle hits the trees in the foreground enabling us to see greater detail in the shadows.
