Very beautiful, Deborah!!!
...love the silhouette and sea of misty cloud formation below.
I assume it was fairly early in the morning...did you drive out to the overlook early?

Thanks so much Roseann, Stephen, Clifton, Wally, Terry, Diane, Nobi and Debra! Your comments are much appreciated!
Hi Nobi, yes very early! The sun was scheduled to rise at 5:51am, we were up early to catch it! This was taken near the top of Trail Ridge Road, the sun peeked over the mountains right on schedule. Although it's July, it was freezing cold up there!

Thank you for your kind comments, Dolores, Mette and Elisabeth! This seemed much nicer in B&W, (in the spirit of Ansel Adams!)

Hi Deborah...can't help but notice the similarity in design between this image and your 'Cormorant Conversation'...the silhouettes are in reverse with (one could say?) the trees replacing the birds....anyway, great photograph!

Hi Michael, thank you! That's funny, I would have never noticed that! I think I must be drawn to angles as Florida is so flat. I'll have to settle for rocky jetty's that look like mountains, LOL!
