This an HDR image using three consecutive photos.
They were taken 20 minutes before sunrise above Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe , California, U.S. on May 28, 2016. This an iconic location for sunrise photos. Thought this one was pretty good.

Exif: F Number: 25, ExposureTime: 1/2 seconds, ISO: 100, FocalLength: 27.00 mm, Model: NIKON D7100
