I pulled off to the side of the road to snag another great sunrise.

Pre-challenge notes:
A bit of an experiment with this one. It did very well on Flickr, getting a lot of comments and 21 people faving it over there. I am especially curious to see if I get any comments along the lines of: "Another fantastic sunrise, Meh...". That was actually my own thought when I first posted it, and was surprised at how much attention it got. I'll see how the pickier DPC crowd likes it.

Post challenge notes:
Did about as hoped, and from the voting breakdown, it was very heavy on the high side. I'm pleased.

Steve this is good. I very much like it, but I do feel it could have benefited from a stronger composition. The placement of the sun feels awkward.
What don't you like? (based on your post in the Mirror thread)

I'd be late to work to capture that fire in the sky too, amazing.

Nicely detail and horizon line. Would only suggest a slight crop off the bottom. Just 1/3 off.

Can't blame you for that. I would have been late, too! Great shot.
