Driving up toward the summit of Mount Evans this past weekend in the pre-dawn hours, my friend and I could see the show starting to unfold to the east. As we ascended, it became clear sunrise was going to be quite photo-worthy. “We have to stop!” we both said simultaneously and of course we did.
Before the sun topped the horizon, the clouds were lit in deep reds and oranges. I knew what was to come so I positioned myself so when the star emerged, it would be in the “valley” between the two mountains, yielding a beautiful starburst. Awesome stuff!
