I was in the process of writing an article on the use of fisheye lenses in nature photography during an excellent year for Aspens in northern Arizona's San Francisco Peaks in the Coconino National Forest. As I do most years, I went up to get some nice shots of these beautiful trees in their full golden colors when I noticed the sun peeking through the tree trunks just after sunrise.
In order to get the trees all the way to the top and capture the sun, the fisheye I happened to have with me due to an article I was working on became my best option. By stopping down, I generated the starburst effect. I carefully positioned the camera to allow the "hole" between the tree tops to diagonally reflect the sunrise in the upper portion of the photo.
