Dawn Over the Rockies

To me, there is nothing more awesome and inspiring than watching the light of day break over the horizon and cast its glow onto the face of majectic mountains, while the back sides of the peaks still hold the shadows of night. Our planet offers wondrous beauty at every level of our ability to perceive it.

This shot was taken with my SONY point-and-shoot digicam, through the smudged glass of an airplane window. For what it may lack in image quality, I think it stilll imparts that feeling of wonder that makes us say, "Wow!" Image c Lynda Lehmann.

This image is available for purchase at I willl be posting more aerial shots of our beautiful planet, soon.


  1. This is a gorgeous shot (smudged airplace window or not)! Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage

  2. I'm glad you like it, Cindy. I hate to fly, but the view IS awesome! Especially at dawn or dusk...

  3. Thank you, Angela! Nice to see you! Hope all is well...

  4. That is just beautiful, awesome shot.

  5. WOW is exactly the word that came out of my mouth when I first saw this photograph. Your photos are amazing and breathtaking. Jane

  6. Bob, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Out of deference for the wonder of "the real thing," I didn't want to enhance it much. I wanted to present this scene the way it really looks, rather than bringing up the saturation, etc., which ic so easy to do in Photoshop. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Hi Jane,
    Thanks for coming over. I'm glad you enjoyed my images! See you at the db. And WWAO, of course...

  8. Thank you, KML. I didn't alter it too much, because I wanted to keep it true to reality instead of increasing contrast and saturation, etc. Thanks for stopping!

  9. I really love this photograph lynda, anna :)
