If I Were a Groundhog...

We finally got a beautiful sunrise this morning, and I almost missed it too!  I got lulled into dull, rainy sunrises last week, and didn't remember to look out the window until after sunrise. Luckily this was one of those sunrises that built slowly.  It's a pretty spectacular scene when the mountain casts a shadow, and it seems to only happen at this time of year.  I was just imagining it happening on groundhog day, and the poor little groundhog heading back into his den to hibernate for eternal winter!  Still struggling with color balance on these vivid sunrises.  My eye sees pink, but the camera records the sunrise in a bloody-orange color. A quick online search for how to correct this turned up blank. Any advice?  The very low-lying clouds have taken on the correct pink, almost lilac color.  This is what happened to me last year too.  Low clouds and fog got the correct color, and the sky came out a bright orange.

It's the first time I've seen a mountain shadow like that. Beautiful photo even if the colours didn't turn out.

Wow! Spectacular! I like the colors your camera captured! I saw this sunrise today, but was already at work so had to look through my office window.....:(

No matter about the colors -- I think the colors are fantastic although some you feel are incorrect. -- barbara
