Morning's Promise

After a 30 minute hike in the dark (using flashlights), along a path through heavy brush that parallels the creek, this was the view at the mouth of lake I was rewarded with as the sun came up!

It's so nice to be out on location before the sun rises and see a new day come to life. What a lovely composition, with the little pool in the foreground! Wonderful light, of course.
