The shot makes you feel that you are there.
Ground mist, aircraft trailing condensation and the glow of the rising sun. Excellent

Nice sun.. rise? On closer inspection one can also discern a teeny weeny plane, just above the center;)

It is a sunrise because the QF major bus is approaching runway 25L, that means it's flying west south west... so we are looking south east more or less, and obviously the sun rises in the east.
