I woke up at 5:30 a.m. this morning (DUH...). But, I'm glad I did. When I peeked out our hotel window, the moon and Venus were out and the sky was perfectly clear. I grabbed my little Canon, since in low light, it does much better than my Nikon, and headed out behind the hotel. Then the sun came up behind the White Mountains and landed on the Sierras. Oh, my! I ran across the highway to shoot some photos of the sunlight hitting the tops of the Sierras. The snow on them was being blown off by high winds and it was a pretty amazing sight! I was so busy snapping photos, I realized that now I needed the Nikon, so I ran back to the hotel, grabbed it, and snapped more pics. Then I realized that hubby should see this too, so I ran back and shouted, "WAKE UP! This is a postcard moment!" and he stumbled out of bed and grabbed his camera, too. There were about half a dozen other photography nuts (like us) out taking photos. Here are a few from early this morning, about 7:00 a.m. I took the top photo on my normal lens setting, then zoomed in for the others.
