This was taken in the Glencoe Highlands back in January of this year during the most amazing sunrise I've ever seen in my life. I first set up and captured my "Heaven's Breath" image and then hiked down further to find different amazing things to pair with the sunrise. It had been raining that morning so there were still puddles on this old dirt road that hikers use.
So I set up a shot to capture the road as part of the sunrise and incorporate the colors as well. What you see here is a natural tone and color to the image. I didn't alter the road and make it purple, this is a natural reaction to the colors of the sky and sunrise above. Hope you like it!
