Hard to do with rolling farmland, but I was driving to a favorite birding spot and caught this sunrise. Reminded me of that "typical" Africa shot. Hope you like the colors anyway. Really needed a deer under the tree........

Thank you all for your positive comments. I'm trying to expand a little from the birds, hopefully I have the right stuff to do other subjects.

Nothing wrong with the cameras, I just don't know what I am doing, so I point and shoot.
