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!
---John

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!
