1203 Sunrise Long Reach

Started 6:30 am April 14th, 2012.
It was time to practise what I preach. At 6:30 am I was out standing (so to speak) on the granite outcrop that pokes into Jim Day Rapids. This is the view looking southeasterly across the whirl pool formed a long time ago when water really gushed through the waterway. The sun rising to the left cast a faint yellow-rose colour to the cirrostratus. "Cirrostratus coming at us" meant a storm was approaching but it would be a while before it arrived with precipitation. This is the same system that threatened tornadoes of mass destruction to the American Midwest. Weather is important!
I always enjoy the way that the light filters through the trees. Ruffed grouse, pileated woodpeckers, barred owls and a host of other creatures provided the sound track. There were no biting insects!
The title is intended to be just a bit humourous since the sun does have a long reach...
