What a beast of a sunrise to edit. There are some other close favorites in this list, but the winning characteristic for me is this rare vertical beam the sun produced. I’ve seen it before, but it’s not been common. The chosen photo best represents the entirety of the scene.

I have since learned this is called a sun pillar.

Definitely seeing some water drops on the lens in these last two
