That and the wind was my main concern, but the rain stopped, the wind calmed and clouds was slowly dissapating so it was set for a good morning capture, I wanted to get this capture right before sunrise to get the most of the colours in the clouds and the warmth.
I was contemplating moving more towards the left in the frame, but the water is actually quite deep even though it does not look like it, so I was looking at the ground for some foreground element, and these flowers (don´t know what they are called) served perfectly, being yellow they would complement the colours of the rising sun.
Due to being very moist in the air I had to set my tripod ready, frame the shot and put the camera in the bag cause the lens was fogging up very fast, so I just stood there and waited until the conditions was getting better.
The tricky part of a shot like this is leading the viewer into the frame, colors and brightness does help but most often you need something more, the grass had a nice curve that served as leading line, and the colours and brightness would do the rest, that is at least the thought process I had behind this shot.
I am actually going up in just a few hours, going to take a small nap before since my sleep rythm is way out of whack, but I am hoping for some good night sky as it is hardly any clouds outside now, just hoping it will hold.
