Morning Fog and Sunrise

A couple days ago, I went to Lake Elmo (a local nature park) to try and take some bird photos. It didn't go that well. The mosquitoes were horrendous and the birds weren't emerging from their hiding places as I had hoped they would. Despite those unpropitious conditions, there was one pro about the trip: the effulgent fog.

Isn't that almost Lothlorien like?

And then this past Saturday morning there was an illustrious sunrise (don't even ask me why I was up early enough to see a sunrise on a Saturday morning. :P).

The view from my bedroom window.

And then the view from, yes, the roof. :P

I don't think I had ever seen a sunrise like that before in my life... A sunset, sure. But a sunRISE?
