But I am a sucker for a great sunrise...so here goes again. Lord knows the forum police are gonna show up ANY minute....LOL!

I was standing on the platform for the train (MAX) at 5:30 AM and looked toward town. I saw JUST the slightest hint of color under lighting the clouds my instincts all started screaming at me to just get my a** back in the car....go home and get the gear. I am very glad I did so.  Zoomed to work and got up on the 7th floor and had one of the absolute most amazing sunrise I have seen in a while. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

I learned a LONG time ago to listen to my instincts. If I don't I get kicked pretty hard.

So I just don't argue with them and do what they tell me.

He has an amazing talent plus he's lucky to be surrounded by beautiful landscapes. Where I live I can only take pictures of cockroaches

I commend you for being at the train station at 0530 ready to commute to work. Oh, did I mention that your Mt Hood shot is indeed wonderful?

I hope i won t get cut into pieces, by trying to constructevly criticque an authority on this forum. Of all the latest three pictures you posted i like this one the best. It s the more artistic one, it gives a little room for interpretation, it lets the colors, the light to make the picture, not the subject itself, thus is departs from a beautiful but obvious, post card landscape, type of picture. This was it starts to lean to art...not only great landscape picture taking and. Please try to read a bit between the lines, as my english doesn t allow me to exactly express  what i mean.

With respect,

Tomas
