Dawn in a Rainforest


This beautiful scenery was captured in Sinharaja rainforest close to Kudawa village. Witnessing sunrise in a rainforest was an awesome experience.

Very nice picture...but, tell me, is this dawn and is this sunrise...

Rainfield,
Thanks and wish you the same :)

Sankara,
Oh yes..I must admit this is not 5am..,...but around 645 in the morning. :))
Sun is out completely..but the forest is still dark due to thick canopy and foliage. :)

This pic has such a great contrast, the pitch black canopy against the bright blue sky. My favorite are those sheep like cloud patterns. Haven't seen them in ages. =D

Thanks Harumi! It was a bright day and the weather was very kind to us during our journey into the rain forest..usually sunny weather in Sinharaja is a rarity :)
