Choose Your Metaphor
This transcendent moment of morning perfection was gifted to me by Lake Tahoe on my last day this past visit. Please do view this one Large on Black ( http://www.darckr.com/photo.php?photoid=2423902003&width=1024&height=768&photoid=2427717860 ) .
The older generation thought nothing of getting up at five every morning - and the younger generation doesn't think much of it either.

Image Notes: This image is a blend of an hdr made from 5 frames 1 EV apart (tone-mapped in Dynamic-Photo HDR) layered over the second darkest exposure of those five with a slight bit of vignetting applied along the way. Also, the just rising sun was positioned directly behind the small structure to create a bloom effect and add to the vignette.
