Sunrise in Shilo Basin

This morning I was gazing out my window and the whole sky was ablaze with the most stunning sunrise! It played out over the entire sky as far as the eye could see, with a fog bank below and t he Shilo Basin in the background. I just had to grab my camera and run out to take some pictures! Just in time too, because the painted sky was just a flash in the pan, and minutes later it had faced to a muted gray.

Here at my home in the Shilo Basin, Oregon I rarely see any sunsets because the entire west facing portion of our property is bordered by about 300 acres of Longview Fiber forest and blocks our view of the setting sun. but we do get to see some beautiful sunrises, especially in the winter season.
