Sabino Creek Sunrise

This morning I woke before dawn and saw that a low fog was blanketing the creek. I knew the combination of the coming sunrise and the lifting mist would offer a rare photographic opportunity. I spent a couple of hours at the water's edge, and even midstream (soaking my shoes) in pursuit of some landscape photographs to add to my portfolio. There were several keepers in the lot, but this one might be the favorite.

Great shot. Yellowstone this Wednesday for a week will be my A7RII workout — just haven’t had time to play! Safe travels for you and Patty, too.

Gorgeous!! You are so disciplined to wake up before dawn to capture this art!
