Sunrise at Deception Pass bridge
After a two hour drive we arrived just before sunrise at this bridge on Whidbey Island in Washington State. After many pre-sunrise images, we were treated to this golden wonder.

    Love the soft mistiness of this image, Dale -- beautiful! BTW, the Zion image is taken on the patio behind the Museum.

Thank you Katherine. Teresa was with me when we took these images on Whidbey Island. Which museum do you mean?

Thank you John. Hadn't visited your gallery for awhile and wish I had. It's marvelous. Was especially taken with "Olivia" and "Don't weep for me" Your post processing techniques and especially the wonderful texturing is excellent. I'm so bad at that and it's something I've really longed to learn.

So beautiful Dale. I was there a few summers ago, in the afternoon with blue sky, looks quite different from your image

Thank you Mary. Loved your gallery and you have sunrises that rival mine easily. Also looks as if you are from my neck of the woods in So. Cal. Maybe we can link up for a shoot someday.
