Pre-Dawn Landscape of Barren Winter Trees, Alabama

On a recent trek across the state, when I had to set out before anything else was stirring, I came across this scene on a bleak winter morning. The sun was just about to break the eastern horizon, and I drove past thinking: (1) there might be something there, and (2) it's cold and I'd really rather not get out of the car. So after a half-mile's worth of deliberation, I turned around, and I'm retroactively grateful to myself for doing so.
