Sunrise 20130724

Great reason to be an early riser... catch a wonderfully colorful view during late twilight (better viewed large-on-black)(also enjoy the dramatic closeup at that same time and the not-too-shabby view at sunrise proper).

Nothing speaks as powerfully to life's opportunity as a sunrise, and I am drawn to witness and record them.

@DarkElf: Thanks, DE. Truth is, it was a lot more dynamic than the picture shows. When the color is that intense and vibrant, it's just hard to capture it with a camera. Maybe I should step up to a higher end camera... I wonder if that would get me closer on such morning.

This is just gorgeous. Our sunset this evening looked very similar. It was breathtaking, and I was driving and unable to capture a shot. :(

@Sharon Pleasants: Hate when that happens... frequently with sunsets for me. At least I'm ensconced for sunrises... and usually on a little three-legged camping stool behind a tripod... with a thermos of coffee! My early morning routine!
