Sunrise over the Rocky Mountain


Canon 6D + 70-200 f/2.8 II IS @165 mm 1/25 f/2.8 ISO 100

The sun was rising and so were the other creations.

When I woke up to pray Fajr this morning, I noticed this beautiful glow of reddish pink in the West Southwest part of the skies over the Rocky Mountain.

I rushed to grab the camera. Within 20 to 30 seconds, the color had changed, and what left was captured in this photo. But there were a lot more 30 seconds ago than what I was able to capture!

The beauty of the creations always mesmerizes me. The moments that I could not capture won’t be returning; what a powerful reminder that is. I whole-heartedly appreciate that I was given the opportunity to experience the split-moment of beauty.
