Winter Sunrise


Finally, winter has come to Pennsylvania at last. Heavy snow flurries pass through overnight leaving a fine white covering. The sunrise this morning cast its warm glow across the new fallen snow.

I nearly missed this sunrise as the sky became a glorious red/orange while I was still a couple of miles from my vantage point. Within minutes of my arrival the beautiful sunrise was only a memory and a photograph.

the long winter shadows and the golden pink cast on the snow make this a beautiful shot. Really nice capture.

Yea! You finally got snow. The sun on the snow is beautiful.

I've never captured a sunrise. I seldom see one and I've driven to work many times before sunrise. Different weather conditions are needed I suppose.
