Gentle Awakening-Sunrise on Marcellina Mountain

I got a chance to get out and do some shooting last week over in the Crested Butte area. The skies were rather smoky at times due to a major wildfire burning down north of Durango, but Friday morning it was fairly clear to the north and west. After shooting sunrise from a new location (I have been to the area many times!), I drove down the road a way to see how things looked. I was glad I did because there was Marcellina Mountain with this beautiful soft light shining on it. I pulled into a camping area that fortunately had no one there so I could shoot out across this meadow.
