Golden Morning

Today's photo was taken very early in the day indeed. 6am, in fact. I was on my way to the train station and, realising that I'd missed the 5:56 to Luton, opted to go for the 6:27 to Leicester and get a connecting train. This gave me a little while to myself, and as I drove down Pitsmoor Road the yellow morning sun reflecting off the clouds caught my eye. The start of a rainbow completed the picture, so I pulled over and took a couple of quick snaps to try and capture what I could of the 135° panorama before me. A high ISO combines nicely with the golden tint to give the whole thing an old fashioned feel, and a gentle unsharp mask with a panoramic crop finishes the job.
