Sunrise

In late October, the presence of mountain wave clouds treated us to a very dramatic sunrise. On clear mornings, Cheyenne Mountain is bathed in a range of colors from purple to orange. On cloudy mornings, the mountain is sort of dark. Rarely does the early rays of sunrise illuminate the mountain with this kind of light.

 

 

Since the fall colors were still present, the sunrise provided one of the best contrasts of the colors against the sky …

 

 

The sky looking towards the sunrise was a nice shade of gold …

 

The window of time nature provided on this morning for this kind of light was about ten minutes. Five minutes later, the light conditions had flattened into a dull gray overcast. It was a good morning for backyard photography at its best.
