    Even though I’m not much of a morning person either, this is enough to make me want to change my ways!

    Glorious photos, but where I was raised we always heard the old saw “Red sky at night, sailors’ delight. Red sky at morning, sailors take warning”. Good thing you aren’t anywhere close to any large bodies of water.

    L ~ yeah, that was my first thought, too, but I don’t know if it applies to Wyo! it’s been a gorgeous clear day….

    Thanks y’all! The only trick of the trade is MANUAL SETTINGS. I did nothing to these in photoshop –
    but if I had relied on the camera meter (auto settings or aperture/shutter priority) I’d have never gotten the shot…… these were 1/100 @ 2.8 if you need a starting point (I remember because I don’t like to hand-hold at less than 1/100 and I was hoping they wouldn’t be too dark – turned out to be perfect!)

    Beautiful. The very early morning is my favorite time of day. Let me ask, what do you hear outside at this time of day? Any traffic noise at all?

    If the sky’s that color in Los Angeles, it means there’s a fire somewhere.

    Wow! I’ve never seen a sunRISE that colorful, only sunSETS. That’s amazing, you must have some ideal weather and cloud conditions there to get such an amazing sight.

    Even tho I am not there, my heart always is…today , I drove to what I knew was going to be a stressful day at work to the song “Home” and as it played, I could “see” the vimeo that you had created a while ago of Charlie and Chloe running around their yard.
    thank you for the beautiful sunrise,,,thank you for ALL!

    Sunrise and sunset are spiritual experiences.

    Wow is right! In the first photo, I knew it was the sky, but wondered WHERE. And then…in the second, there was the point of reference! Nice!

    I love watching the sunrise, I look forward to it every day, listening to Gregory Peck ( my rooster) greet the morning is the perfect backdrop. Your photo is absolutely gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

    It may be past 10 PM right now as I view these beautiful pictures, but suddenly the very long day has melted away. Your pics inspired me to play my old “Debussy at Dawn” CD, track 2: The Sea at Dawn. Great orchestral work with uplifting strings, flute and harp. Perfect accompaniment to your splendid artwork (despite Lesa’s comment about red sky and sailors!). Thank you, Shreve!

    Each morning I go out to my barn at sun rise when it is so quite I can here the woodpecker banging on the tree in the woods. The snow glistens like jewels and krackles under my feet. Then as I enter the barn my blind cat is always at the door waiting and my dog is jumping up and down for it is chow time. When we come out the sun is beginning to rise through the trees like a huge ball of fire and if I look in the opposite direction the reflection on the clouds make it look like a sun set. Even if it is below zero it is a great way to start the day.

    Gorgeous colors; thank you, Shreve.

    I tend to have jobs that start early, so I have learned the delights of watching sunrise, of walking / bicycling / driving through nearly empty streets, feeling the stillness of the world just starting to stir… Seeing the owls swoop about on their last nightly hunt, lightening flashing inside a stormcloud as it recedes to the south, trees hissing in the wind under the fading stars. Special times.
