This sunrise was taken above the Fish Creek drainage on Steens Mountain.  Aspen rarely make an appearance in Oregon and to find such a large colorful stand was outstanding to say the least.  The Aspen here only occur in a narrow elevation range of between 6,500 to 8,000 feet.  My friend Ron and I had traveled here from the Portland area in late September on 2010.  I had only recently made the transition from analog film to digital.  This scene was a real feast for the eyes.
