Mother Nature offered up some serenity - a beautiful sunrise. I love how a nearby pond reflects it.
A bit later in the sunrise, more orange had crept into it.
Winter is our season for gorgeous sunrises... and that's a wonderful aspect to this time of year. An added bonus is that the elk herd is nearby, and the bulls bugled about every 10 seconds throughout the entire sunrise.
I made a video of the sunrise and the alpenglow on the Continental Divide. It's quite short... I hope that you enjoy it. And send some good thoughts to R for the surgery and the recovery/transition that will follow.
