Five Minute Sunrise

On leaving coffee last weekend, we noticed the solid overcast brightening a bit in the east. I stopped and waited while the underside of the overcast turned into a brilliant color for just a few minutes, then faded back to the dull overcast gray. I reduced the exposure to accentuate the rich color making the sunrise more pronounced than it actually was. It also lost some sharpness which was likely operator error! :-)
