Sunrise Fire?

At coffee this week I noticed the eastern sky developing some interesting color so I walked out into the parking lot and took a couple of shots. Upon processing the images, I was surprised with how the sunlight beneath the cloud bank shining through the trees gave the appearance of fire. Great, a novel looking sunrise! :-)

Well spotted, you weren't doing the usual bit of drinking coffee with your nose buried in the paper oblivious to the world about you.

Sure does look like a fire ! Outside my coffee shop, I see only snarled traffic and a beggar being arrested.

@grouser: I meet my daughter for coffee most mornings at 5:30am on her way to work. I stay behind with other coffee friends and waste some time! :-)

Wonderful sky above the trees, and your timing/framing to get the rising sun just visible beneath the canopy of the trees makes the shot special.
