For the most part, the early morning sun was just beating on me during my climb up Mission Peak in Fremont, California. My plan was to take some photos into the sun, but only in specific situations. I wanted one of the sun just peaking over a hill with a sunburst effect. That didn’t quite come out, but the sun shining through this oak tree did.
