sunrise on Mt. Tamalpais

Sunday morning I thought all the "fireworks" would be happening down towards the Golden Gate Bridge, but a huge fog bank wasn't cooperating so I made a hasty retreat to the north-east side of Mt. Tamalpais.   This is the appropriately named, Alpine Dam.   It's one of five man-made lakes that provide water for Marin County.

I'm impressed Don. That is an amazing picture. Some photographers are lucky and get amazing shots just once in a while, but you seem to have the gift. You continually impress me. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for all the great comments!

I "thought" this was a pretty good photo, but yesterday I sent it to a photog buddy in the mid-west who didn't even mention it in his reply... --Oh... I'll get even with him...

But yeah, I like it too.   I boosted the color saturation slightly to get some more color into it.   Two other examples of the same scene are over on yesterday's Daily Duo

I think this is just magical. Boo to your midwest friend....What you did with the color saturation puts it a step above.

The shadows.
The light.
The gradation in tone.
All of the neutral colors.
Outstanding exposure.

All above were perfect.
Great work.

WOW!
