Morning Suspense – Colorado Sunrise

Here’s one more image from the Eastern Plains of Colorado. This was an image taken just prior to my Eastern Plains image last week just as the sun was coming up over the horizon.  The storm clouds were in full force and the light from the sunrise lit up the sky with spectacular orange tones against the blue hour sky. If you drive out this way during the day, it’s just farmland, but in the mornings and evenings the big beautiful sky just seems to come alive. I call it morning suspense.  You know with the clouds in the sky the sun will do spectacular things in the sky and you wait in anticipation to see what happens. It’s better than any movie I know and each time you watch it the plot changes. I can’t wait for the next episode when I can get out on the plains again.
