197/365 Gorgeous sunrise

There are times when I'm so struck by something, I have to pull my car to the side of the road, throw on the flashers, and get a photo.

Tuesday morning's sunrise was worthy of this. It was, in a word, gor-geous.

Most often the beautiful sunrises are red and orange, but what made this one especially spectacular was the inclusion of blue and violet. It was about 7:30 a.m., and I knew the rest of the day (and the two days following) were going to be rainy, dreary and just blah in general.

So that foresight alone made me realize that if I didn't stop for this photo, I'd be kicking myself until at least the weekend.

I'm so glad I stopped.

Camera: Canon 40D, 1/125s, f/4 at ISO 200 at about 7:30 a.m.
