A Million Dollar View from a Five Figure Home

pacific northwest sunriseOn September 21, 2011, while enjoying my morning coffee, I looked outside the window of my sailboat and was dazzled by the spectacular sunrise. The photos below are completely unaltered and untouched. They were taken between six and seven a.m. I’m a early morning riser, preferring to work while it’s dark and I’m totally refreshed. Boy am I glad I was awake for this amazing display.

    Courtney… Beautiful pics!! I especially love the “hole” in the clouds allowing the light to shine down on Mt. Rainier. I must say that it’s my turn to say that I’m uber-jealous of your Million Dollar View… oh, and I may now hate you just a bit. 😉
