Some Bright Sunshine At the Vermilon River. A Post to SWF.

We were rewarded with two days of sunshine, and I managed to catch the sunrising, while Boom and I were walking. The sun was just coming up.

Sunrise a Little later.

The gold light of the sun made the ridge appear gold.

You can see the same gold ridge in the photo opposite. The rest of the post is all birds in bright settings, which is pleasant for a change.
