Another beautiful sunrise over the Colorado Rockies. On an early morning drive up the Mount Evans Highway, I pulled to the side of the road, along the Upper Goliath Wilderness Area, and hiked a short distance to capture the sunrise. Finding an interesting, small bristle-cone pine tree as foreground interest, I set up the tripod and captured a lot of images of the sun as it inched it’s way over the mountains and through the clouds:
This image is a result of combining 3 individual images of varying exposures (a process called HDR, High Dynamic Range). I would have loved to have had more clouds in the sky for more color, but still a nice way to wake up!
