    Is that a real sunrise in a real place or just some electronic manipulation? Whatever it is, it is beautiful!!!

      It is indeed a real sunrise in a real place (outside Burney). I just adjusted the focus to the foreground which gives it that dollhouse look. I'm glad you like it!

        Matt… thanks for humoring me when I ask about the where of a picture. I'm an inveterate map reader and love geography so I find the 'where' of things of great interest. I knew we had all kinds of valleys: Long Valley, Short Valley, Green Valley…etc., etc. but didn't realize we had a Tiny Valley.

          To be honest, I just called it a tiny valley because I wasn't sure what the true name was. I'm not even sure what the name of that mountain is. I think there was a sign at the vista point, but if I read it then I promptly forgot it.

          I'm sort of a "general area" geographer.
