This is an early morning sunrise from Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. When we got there the clouds were very thick but began to burn off shortly after the sun peaked over the mountains to the right. It was about 10 degrees Fahrenheit that morning with a bitter cold wind blowing from the west. This is a three image panorama shot at 10mm stitched via Photoshop CS6 and edited in Lightroom 4
