Beautiful, Scott, and I was so tickled when I just checked a sunset photo I took last night that I remembered to use F/22.0 ... next I need to remember to take my remote cable! ;)

Lovely capture of the sunlight! I love mornings just like this, but very rarely am I up and actually photographing that early anymore. Gotta love off shifts:)

i wonder if beauty comes from the sun
or the trees. because one without the other
would just be nothing, maybe at best
black and white, molten rock and rock.

This is the stuff fairytales are made of.. again you marvel with natural light. Of course if it was black and white it would have a more eerie effect but with how wonderful you are with color I can't imagine you desaturating things too often.
