This morning, after a week of temperature inversion in Montana’s western valleys, it began to leave and made a beautiful exit.

    • This fall I’ve seen more colorful sunrises than I have for many years. They have been wonderful!

    • The color in this sunrise was deeper than the sunsets when we had all that smoke. Perhaps there were more particles in the inversion layer than I thought.

    • I first noticed it when I saw that the whole south side of my car was glowing deep orange. It was an amazing light show!

    • I think that was the most colorful sunrise that I’ve ever seen. It was a real pick-me-up!

  10. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a deep purple, except one morning down at the coast. We’ll get oranges and reds that are that vibrant, but this is something special.It’s a wonderful set of photos. The photo with the trees reflecting in the orange water is my favorite.

    • It’s hard to believe that photo of this sunrise and the one in my previous post of the window in the clouds were taken only 2 days apart.

    • They have been very pleasant, but I’m afraid they are over for this year. This morning we have a light, cold rain and clouds nearly down to the valley floor.

    • It was the most striking one I’ve ever seen, although a few in the Arizona desert came close.

      • Was the rest of the day beautiful and clear, or was there some sort of storm?
        I remember, when I had a sailboat, I would often hear the saying “red sky in the morning, sailor take warning.”
        Only this sky appears to be purple, blue, orange, and yellow–not red!
        So I am interested in how the rest of the day appeared.

        • The morning clouds cleared before noon and it was a bright sunny day, which was much appreciated because it has been raining ever since.

  17. I love them – gorgeous. I’ll start recovering from the surgery, which I had last week. Nothing special, but it slowed down life.
