3-Minute Differential

Today’s post features a couple of early morning sunrise images I captured on my way up the Mount Evans Highway, in Colorado. With such spectacular colors, I ended up staying in this one location for quite a while, capturing the transformation from night to day. Being a Sci-Fi enthusiast, the sky/sun reminds me of some of the atmosphere images you sometimes see in a sci-fi flick (e.g, “Predators”, which I watched just a couple of days ago)!

The time differential in these 2 images is 3 minutes apart.

6:01 am:

Sunrise over Mt Evans, CO

6:04 am:

Sunrise over Mt Evans, CO

Lesson to learn? When you think it’s about over, stay with it a while longer … you never know!
