Thanks for all the voters and comments. Was gifted the most beautiful sunrise on the 1st of January 2020. There was just to much to photograph. Lightning, Rainbows, Clouds, Partial inversion, Vultures and many spectacular sun rays through valleys and spires. Glad I got up early and did the walk to get to this spot as the memory of this morning still stays with me.

Such a beautiful corner of the world. Unfortunately you gave the unnecessary sharpening halo to the mountain
