  1. Nice work Cris – I like the way you have retained some detail in the foreground fence posts rather than just allowing them to become silhouettes against the sky. Plenty of impact to the shot as well ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Great entry for this week theme my friend ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Missouri is such a great cross section of America. I think this poster I designed sums it up.

  11. some people just have the knack – it appears you’re one of them

  12. That is hope! A rising sun to drive the cold and darkness away! Beautiful!

  13. gorgeous…I’ve had a thing for sunrises lately

    • Thanks. That’s cool. I’ve always had a thing for sunrises, ever since I was around 21 when I saw my first pink sunrise coming up over the mountains of Washington State while visiting relatives.

  14. You captured the crimson sky with great beauty.
    Very Nice,

  15. Beautiful photo. I guess it’s unappropriate to use the term “kodak-moment” now that kodak is bankrupt…

  16. Gorgeous! And don’t call it lucky…perhaps the camera recorded the colors that way, but who was out at dawn with a camera, ready to frame and shoot it–and who managed to do it without blowing out the sky due to the brightness of the sun?

    It wasn’t luck–if you hadn’t had the skill to do all those other things, nobody would have seen this picture.

    Never downplay your own skill and call it “luck”. You were there–you took the picture. You got a great shot. ๐Ÿ™‚ Congratulations!

    • Thank you for your supporting words. You have a point there. The funny thing is, I don’t even remember shooting the photograph. I don’t know where I shot it. But there it is. Weird. Comes from driving all night, I guess. I’m pretty tired by the time I get home. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  17. Thank you for your brilliant observations! Hee. Hee. It was a lucky catch, being in the right place at the right time.

  18. Beautiful!

  19. Each night people sleep with lots of plan for the next day, this really shows hope in them. Here the rising sun fill their hope. Sweet little post.

  20. Great idea !

  21. Love this picture, every sunrise gives us hope;)

  22. what a great click!
