Sunrise at Lake Powell

Another day, another dawn start. Alas, this time it was bitterly cold with a 30 mph wind thrown in for good measure. Not a great time to be standing on a rocky slope at 6 am waiting for sunrise. Within 10 minutes it was so cold I couldn't really operate the camera, and the only reason I could take any shots at all was because I was using a remote release kept in the pocket of my fleece. Add that to the well know fact that when the brain is sufficiently cooled any real interest in photographing things gets rapidly overtaken instead by the survival instinct of finding a place for breakfast and a nice cup of tea. Game over.

Not surprisingly, nothing good came out of this one! Above is the best I could manage.
