Mountain Sunrise

When the first rays of sunrise strike the mountains, we have those “purple mountains majesty” from America The Beautiful. The purple color lasts for a few minutes, before transitioning to pink then orange.

This first photo is Almagre Mountain, just south of Pikes Peak …

These two photos are the top ridge line of Cheyenne Mountain …

Between the tree branches is Mount Rosa, which lies east-southeast of Pikes Peak …

Unfortunately, the better view of the mountains from our backyard is obstructed by trees. It’s a bit better during the winter months when the trees don’t have their leaves.
