Skywatch Friday ~ Sunrise 12-6-09

Aperture: f/16, Shutter speed: 1/60 sec., ISO: 100
Ok, so get this.....I was actually trying to blow dry my hair and run outside and take pics of this sunrise all at the same time, in the bitter cold on that morning. My hair froze and dried weird, so I ended up having a bad hair day with no time to really fix it very well, since I was running late. It was quite comical, but I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to practice taking some more sunrise shots. While running back inside to try and fix my hair, I missed the sun when it first peeked over the mountains, but what's a girl supposed to do? I had to get beautified and that takes time! Anyway, it was worth sacrificing my hair to get these shots! lol
