One never knows if you’ll be rewarded with beautiful color or instead see a flat sky when you get up at 4 in the morning to make the hour journey to a location you’ve wanted to shoot at sunrise for sometime.

I’ve left a Silver Lake a number of times disappointed, but thankfully that didn’t happen on this morning at Convict Lake. The colors in the dawn sky were lovely. There was very little Alpine Glow on this morning. One of these days I’ll hit the jack-pot and get both in the same photo.
