This is the view of sunrise over the distant Sawtooth Mountains, taken from Pilot's Peak lookout. I find the subtle, soft colors a wonderful expression of such a big view of Idaho's mountains and forest.

The afternoon of the previous day there was a very dramatic storm of heavy rain and very close lightening strikes ( this is a fire lookout! ). I was depending on the safety of sitting in my truck and the knowledge there was a well-grounded fire lookout nearby to attract the lightening. As the sunrise came the next morning, there was a mystical mist interspersed between remote mountain ridges.
