The remnant clouds of Tropical Storm Ignacio provided some early morning drama over the Northern California hills as they put on a light show at sunrise.

One of my dream shots is to get a lone tree on a hill. You not only got that, you got one at sunrise too. Very striking!

Gorgeous image Scott. I love seemingly simple moments like this. I use the word "simple" not as a negative but rather a compliment. Very well done.

Scott this is beautiful! I love the soft light on the foreground grass- the way it glows... the tree in silhouette is great, and the sky? Perfect! This makes me feel like I am waking up in my sleeping bag at Henry Coe!
