I was amazed that anyone on any campus was up so early in the morning as to catch Sunrise's golden light on a wall - until I read your description. lolllllll

Regardless of which end of the day, it's a lovely scene, Christopher. Congratulations for your POTD.

Thank you all very, very much! What fun to wake up to this today! The wall is on the edge of Washington National Cathedral's property, enclosing the set of buildings that make up the former College of Preachers campus. I'd been photographing at the cathedral all day, and was driving home when I had to slam on the brakes, back up and shoot this out my car window; the light was gone about 2 minutes later!

The lighting obviously makes this image excel but the many other elements are worthy of noting too! The off center door, the glowing ivy, the textured wall and simply the beauty of the subject all come together so perfectly! Many CONGRATS on your POTD Chris!!
