I woke up early yesterday morning. I had an all-day class to attend, and the sunrise was beautiful and I wanted to head out with my camera. It was raining on and off, sometimes gently and sometimes hard, so taking photos was difficult. I found a spot to take some sunrise photos, then I drove out Washington Avenue toward Thousand Palms Canyon. I stopped here to take this photo. There is a turnout where you can park and walk a ways and that is one of my favorite spots. The sun was just barely poking through all the clouds, so it is still fairly dark. This is "SOOC", straight out of the camera, no tweeking! SOOC for October 3, 2010.
