Aloha Mike,
Now that you have captured THE PERFECT sunrise -- how do you think that makes the rest of us feel? (Just pack up your gear, Mike already did the sunrise.)

This is stunning, lovely and captured perfectly.

Thanks again for all of the very kind comments!! It has been a long time since one of my images has drawn this much attention. I do have a canvas of this image hanging on my wall so I guess I think it is special too as I don't get much printed. :-) Mike
