Not Quite Sunrise

There was a beautiful sunrise this morning. Unfortunately I can't really show what it looked like. This HDR picture doesn't even begin to reflect the dynamic range of the actual scene. I tried about 10 times to capture what I was seeing but gave up. This was about 30 minutes before the sun actually showed itself above the horizon. For most of the morning we had bright sun shining underneath the cloud layer since it never really rose that high in the sky. Today, the forecast was for rain. I'm not sure if we ever got any (I hope not) but I plowed another couple of inches of snow off of our driveway in the early afternoon. I didn't want it to all turn to ice.

Otherwise, another slow day. No black friday shopping for me just a run into the coffee shop in the morning.

Beautiful capture of the sunrise, Richard. I don't understand the hype of black friday either, thankfully that's a ritual which - unlike Halloween and Valentines Day - hasn't made it to Germany just yet.

Great pic with great framing and colors....as to Halloween making it into Germany, along with Valentines day....my apologies.

I don't understand it either especially in these days of online everything. Even many of the brick and mortar stores are giving the option of ordering online and getting the same deal.

Thank you... I gave up on the picture after being unable to get a picture that even closely represented reality.
