I took this image this past weekend. It was a very cold and bright sunny day. The early morning light sure did help with the exposure and to give the sky this deep blue colour. Thanks for viewing. Canon 7DMKII, 70-200, f/8, 1/2000, ISO 250.

Beautiful shot. Still haven't seen one but I'm keeping my eyes open whenever I'm out on the road.
