I waited 2 1/2 weeks for a decent sunrise on KI. When it came it was a cracker. It was hard to post process this image, as I could only make very subtle changes or it looked fake.

About 9 years ago a large wildfire burnt out over 80% of the NP. The fire was so intense that many of the mature trees were killed. There is now a double canopy, the dead upper layer and the regrowing green layer (actually black in this image).
