Thank you Gary, it was actually a sunrise and I guess these sort of mornings seldom come along...I was so glad to be there for it with camera in hand.

Phil can this be the same sun that rises each morning in Penn valley California? Great photo taken with a equally great camera, Oh and thanks for the information, Des

Des, thank you for your kind comment. I'm told that this is the same sun that you witness in California, even though we are so far apart. The difference with this one is more than likely the altitude and makeup of the clouds, and the atmospheric dust on this particular morning that may have provided the great tones we see here.
