The Red Warmth of Winter

Cherry Creek State Park in Colorado sets the scene for a truly vivid and stunning sunrise, and I was lucky enough to have been in the right place at the right time when Mother Nature decided to paint the sky with some of the best color I had ever seen! I waited for a few seconds just to get the birds in the frame as I really wanted them in there to break up the shot some. Used a Hoya CPL and ND4 on this, and a Minolta 50mm f1.7 lens, along with my tripod.
Hope ya all like it!

This is stunning! I'd say I'm jealous, but then I'd have to be tired like you were to wake before dawn, so I won't be! :P
What a gorgeous shot!
