Sunrise and sunset conventionally refer to the times when the upper edge of the disk of the Sun is on the horizon, considered unobstructed relative to the location of interest. Atmospheric conditions are assumed to be average, and the location is in a level region on the Earth's surface.
During the course of a day the Earth rotates once on its axis causing the phenomena of rising and setting. All celestial bodies, stars and planets included, seem to appear in the sky at the horizon to the East of any particular place, then to cross the sky and again disappear at the horizon to the West. The most noticeable of these events, and the most significant in regard to ordinary affairs, are the rising and setting of the Sun and Moon. Because the Sun and Moon appear as circular disks and not as points of light, a definition of rise or set must be very specific, for not all of either body is seen to rise or set at once.

I think this is a really lovely photograph the colours are really warm and the picture is really well focused which really brings out the texture of the trees nicely. The darker colours of the trees and the sky go well together and this makes the sun stick out more, which means that I am focused on the sun which is great as the sun is so bright and beautiful in this photograph and it is great to be drawn in to the sun which is what this image does so well!
And having looked through your images I would say that the quality is great well done I look forward to seeing more!

Interesting note and great picture. I love the subdued tones of the shot with the sun as the main focal point but the trees as a foreground interest. Great shot, TFS.
