Flowers begin to open as the sun rises at 12,100 feet just south of Simmons Peak.

Re: Very nice, Chad

Thanks so much Sarah! It was a fortunate change in plans that put me here...

The day before thunderstorms pushed me off Simmons Peak and down to camp before I finished my itenerary (and created conditions for a previous POTW). As a result I had to get up early to complete the next day's objectives. It was worth it!

Re: Beautiful shot!

Thank you Eric. Your sunrises have given me something to work towards. I still have a long way to go!

Nice Light!

I bet I know a few Filipino girls, er... guys who would like those flowers. Well done, Chad.

Re: Nice Light!

I bet they are still at work this time of day to eh? Maybe even have a few hours left if they are putting a long one in.

Re: Beautiful composition...

Wow thanks Big Lew! I appreciate that. They certainly were a lucky find up there, on the right side of the ridge and everything.
