Its Always a Surprise... Sunrise
28-OCT-2008 Sandi Whitteker

It's Always a Surprise... Sunrise

Monolake, California

You never know, when you get up in the dark and head out to shoot dawn at Mono Lake, if the "Sierra Wave" clouds
will have rolled in while you slept, to give you the sky you've been waiting for. Twice before they didn't... but on this
morning, the rising sun revealed them in all their glory, creating a blazing fire in the sky backdrop to the tufas.

You can tell on a great sunset, during pre-set of the sun, the skies tend to glow with more ambient warm light, indication a good or a great one may appear. After the sun sets it takes about 15~20 mins for the deepest of colors to peak. Usually when that happens AM's are happening too. A royal sunset Sandi :-)
