The photo above shows an eye-catching sunup over the high plains near Lethbridge, Alberta. It was snapped on July 17, 2013 at 5:40 a.m. Beautiful crimson colors paint the underside of altocumulus clouds here as intense oranges and yellows dominate closer to the horizon. Sunrises and sunsets are almost always more interesting if mid-level and high clouds are present. The Sun seldom captures our attention when it rises into a clear sky and an atmosphere relatively free of aerosols and or dust.
Photo details: Nikon D5100 camera; f/8; 1/60 sec. exposure; ISO 720; 35mm/27 lens.
