What Inspired Me?
On Monday August 2008 I saw the “6:45AM sunrise” and it was quite a sight. I told myself I was going to get a picture of this type of sunrise on Tuesday. On Tuesday, I forgot my camera. I also forgot the camera on Wednesday. Thursday brought a semi-nice sunrise but there were just too many clouds to get the type of color I wanted.

On Friday morning however, the conditions were almost perfect. A few clouds underlit by the rising sun gave me the picture I wanted. The only problem is the thick layer of smoke hanging just around mountain top level.
