Sunrise

Click on image to enlarge.
Early last Saturday morning, Pilot and his Pilot Friend, arose early and climbed Pinnacle Peak near where they live. They arrived at the summit before sunrise and Pilot was able to snap this picture as the sun rose behind the peaks. Notice the sun star just as it emerges over the rocks.

Climbing BEFORE sunrise?? What, are they nuts?! :)

Beautiful picture - which is the ONLY way I'll see it!

Now, THAT is a cool photo! Especially from an amature? Very cool.

Carol said...

P.S. Yo, Gayla! They're military. They have night vision goggles.

Okay, so I made that up.

Gayla said...

I ain't talking 'bout any night vision goggles. I'm talking about being AWAKE at that hour! LOL :)

What an awesome photo.

Gayla, I think this is where that slogan "We do more before breakfast than most people do in a day" comes in. LOL

Gayla said...

LOL, Jules - you're probably right about that!

Great shot! We are out walking in the Highlands this Saturday so hopefully I'll get some good shots.

I wish I were an early riser. It makes me sad to think of all the sunrises I have missed.
This is a great shot. I can only imagine how one would feel in the presence of such beauty. I would want to fall to my knees and worship my creator.
In fact, I probably would do just that.

lovely photo ... if it's in AZ i guess the time to climb is before the sun rises! it's a warm place this time of year ...

Pilot Mom said...

MMama, I feel the same way!

Saija, it isn't AZ. :)

Gayla, Carol, Jules, you crack me up!

Thanks Dawn!

Dave, I'm looking forward to seeing your pics! I always enjoy seeing them.

What a gorgeous photo! Not sure which I like best - dawn or dusk shots. Isn't it fun when the sunburst cooperates like that?
