SkyWatch Friday - Frosty sunrise

Tuesday morning as I headed to school, the sun was just rising and a bank of fog almost filtered out the sun.  This is one of my favorite sunrise pictures I have taken.  The colors were stunning.  Hope you enjoy it.


If you enlarge it, you can see the frost and the sliver of the Teton River reflecting the yellows of the sun.  Just the beginning of another wild day in Idaho.

What a beautiful way to greet the day, shining in gold. Excellent capture Bill.

Sweet. Loved your owl pics, too--that's amazing to have them sit still for a portrait. I generally see them as a ghost on whisper wings gliding through the trees.

Awesome! I forwarded this post on Twitter. It just begged to be shared!

That is so beautiful -- I'm not sure that "enjoy" is a strong enough word to use for a view like this. It really is incredibly beautiful. You live in Paradise. And you take great pictures of it.

Very pretty picture. It sure has been a crazy winter this year. Here in New Hampshire we have gotten almost no snow...it's all fallen down south.
