Into the Forest

If you recall I posted a sunrise image from Herbert Lake a while back.  I traversed into a forested area so that I could get to the shoreline to capture the sunrise.  Walking back out of the trees after sunrise I noticed a few hikers walking toward shoreline and so turning around to try to capture some stock photography of the hikers I notice the great sun beam peaking through the trees illuminating the trail and the foliage on the forest floor.  Here’s my image from that morning.
