River of Fire
This is an image that is fresh off my camera from this morning. After scouting a new location along the Colorado River before sunrise, I was chased away by some duck hunters. Well, they didn't actually chase me away, but based on where I was and where they were, I didn't think it was a good idea to stick around and take my chances. I didn't have much time before the sun was scheduled to come up at this point, so I quickly drove back to Grand Junction to an area I drove by a few days ago that I wanted to return for a sunrise or sunset. I'm glad I did, especially with the very cold weather we've been having lately which caused fog to rise off the river. By the time I took this image I couldn't feel my fingers, but I think it was worth it. I love the warm back-lighting of the fog above the icy river.
