Taken before sunrise at the 06 Ranch. The cowboys spend the night in these tepees and get up very early to prepare for the round-up. Loved the colors and light in the sky but the foreground was very dark so used a truck headlight to light paint and illuminate the foreground elements. Canon 5D, 24mm, ISO 1600, F/5, 1/15 sec lying at ground level. Aperture 3, Nik Viveza 2 & Color Efex Pro used for post processing.

Exif: F Number: 5, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/13 seconds, Flash: fired, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 1600, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 24.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 5D
