This comely sunrise was captured at Tura Beach, in southeastern Australia, this past July. Darkened digits (shadow bands of crepuscular rays) appear to be desperately holding on to the fast receding night. The variegated sky results from the increased path length of light when the Sun approaches the horizon -- nearly all of the greens and blues have been scattered out of view.
