Speaking of sunrise
While it's not the Rockies, I didn't have to go far to see it

Nice!!! 

Like both of them.  The top one looks like what I'd expect in the Devil's Hip Pocket, except that the slope is wrong for sun in the west.  I've never been all the way over the top into the pocket.

Haven't talked to you for awhile but assume you know I wrecked my vehicle so our hope of a calling safari before Christmas is toast.

Here's a tip on taking mountain photos:   It is easier to take pics of mountains from the bottom than from the top...    :biggrin:  Compare yours with my sunrise pic in the Rockies about a dozen posts before yours.

Thot that this series fits here better than other places.  Yesterday morning a storm front came in from the Pacific and reached Mt. Baker just as the sun rose from behind the peak. 

The first photo below is well before sunrise with the clouds coming from the right (west) moving inland to the left (east) toward the mountain.  The point of view is looking southeast.

Soon a lens cloud formed slightly downwind of the peak, eastward of it.   Sometimes these lenticular clouds form on clear days right on top of the peak, or just over it, and sometimes they form a pennant streaming downwind of the summit.

The lens cap cloud grew (below) and linked with the clouds arriving from the right side west.  The wind from right to left over the mountain is picking up snow and blowing it into swirls which show as a slightly pink mist or fringe down the left side of the mountain.

The sun came up over the summit just before clouds completely covered it.  Lousy photo as the camera simply could not digest the contrast of bright sun and shadow.  Within minutes after this photo it was all cloudy and soon was a curtain of grey rain cutting off all view of the mountains.  Still raining today.  No doubt it is snowing a few hundred feet elevation above my house.
