    (Been sitting here in my bathrobe since 4:30 this morning--nothing by blue sky).

    Nice capture with the beast. The beast is very awesome..........although it's a pain in the neck to carry around.

  9. Thanks for the nice comments everyone! Added 2nd pic that didn't load the first time. Appreciate y'all taking the time to reply. :)
     
  10. Better than any early morning cup of coffee--almost! Love the dark steely blues at the top!

    Stunning
     
  12. Great ones Will!

    I'd love to shoot a photo like either of these, but, a) I'm generally too lazy on off-days to get up that early, and b) I've never been to New Mexico. It looks like both are probably important to those shots (along with a great eye, which I don't have either).

    I hope to remedy two of those issues later this summer or early fall (the eye thing will remain a work in progress).
     
  13. Thanks, Nick!
     
  14. Appreciate it, Ron. I get lazy...from time to time I'll just shoot thru the dining room
    sliding glass doors, instead of walking out on the deck. If you come out this way
    in the Fall be sure and look me up, NM is pretty good salve for that "eye" thing. :biggrin:

  16. Thanks, Kevin!
     
  17. Appreciate it, Lou...one of the perks of getting up at o'dark thirty! :373:
     
  18. Those shots are just beautiful!
    I especially like the second one.
     
  19. Nice work Trench!
    That's worth losing a little sleep for.

    What a beautiful sunrise! You live in great country!

    I was born in New Mexico and would love to get back there!
