The Before Dawn Glow by kkart The Before Dawn Glow by kkart
Before sunrise is a time when everything is still & quiet and for a few minutes it offers some great faint light to photograph in. I shot this scene watching the pink hues begin to light the sky up over the Indian Peaks and just sort of sat there and thought how the world was still asleep while something completely beautiful was happening and yet they were all missing it. I guess that is one of the reasons why I wake up at 3am to be on location, to see things most people never will and to gaze in awe at the tranquility & beauty which I am able to witness.

Wow... I would love to be right here at this moment of dawn. The way you describe it sounds incredible. It's so gorgeous. I would gladly get up at 3am any day to see this. Thanks to you, at least we have this beautiful photo for those of us who can't! :3

I can't get over the reflection and the mountains in the background! I love your eye for good landscape shots, I have always struggled with that.
