Sunrise Over Salmon Creek

We've been getting these beautiful pink sunrises lately on days that we don't have fog.  I've been noticing them from my bedroom window as I slept in over the winter holiday.  Today was the first day back to school, so everyone was out the door before sunrise.  No fog, so Clover and I headed over the Salmon Creek for an early morning walk.  I wasn't expecting the creek to be partially frozen like that because it warms up quite a bit during the day, but I think the icy pattern is awfully pretty.  Mt. Hood is barely visible in the background behind the trees.

Very beautiful photo. I am so glad you got out there and had the chance to take it. From my workplace window, I saw the same sort of colors reflected on all of the downtown skyline this morning, right after 7:30 a.m. I couldn't get my camera out in time to get a photo, so I am particularly happy to see yours today. Thanks, Melissa!
