Like icing on a cake :) Breath-taking! Marc, how much editing do you do on your pix, or are they 'out the box'? I know you spend a lot of time and consideration on setting up your shots, so do you need to do much to them afterwards? I melt in your gallery :) #3464755

This magical moment happened in the early morning over Oregon's Painted Hills National Monument. The hills are stained with the remains of thousands of ancient creatures that perished millions of years ago as massive volcanic eruptions blanketed the region in layers of ash. The layers have erroded over time revealing many telling stories. The sunrise speaks for itself. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Thanks for looking.

Canon 5D, 17-40mm at 20mm. 3-stop hard grad, minimal PS work.
