  4. So beautiful – just the silhouettes of the trees on the skyline to give a sense of the scale!

  5. Beautiful. It had to have been a good day with a start like that.

    • It was, and it wasn’t. Strange day. When I got to the trail the sky had clouded over and gotten quite dark. The trail followed a stream in a deep canyon part of the way and it was very humid and very cold: parts of the trail were frozen. Unfortunately, the clouds persisted all of the time I was at the lake, very poor for photos, then by the time I arrived home in late afternoon the sky cleared and the sun was warm.

    • Yes, I think there’s a small ranch about there. The colors were exceptionally bright for our sunrises here, perhaps because of the location from which I took the photo, about 20 miles from my home.

  7. That must have been left over from last night’s beautiful sunset.

    • The colors are a little surprising now that most of the smoke has cleared away.

  12. One of these days I have to drag myself out of bed and capture a good sunrise. Or maybe I’ll just look at yours! 😉

  14. Awesome. So maybe AZ only has the second best sunrises/sets. We did have a good one last night.

    • I don’t think Arizona sunsets can be beat, but once in a while here there will be a spectacular one.
