Time to wake up.
This is a 3 exposure, -2, 0, +2, of a sunrise just north of  Athens, GA.
I used Nik HDR Efex Pro 2 for post processing.
I love the way the colors turned out.  What do you think?

I was out early one morning and I just happen to see this horse.

I love the way the fog is rising up from the ground.

I was up early taking some sunrise pictures.
Here is a barn on a small pond in our neighborhood.

This was a 1 second exposure to give it a little glow.

I need to go back to the beach.

Watched this beautiful sunset with my wife and brother.  Good times.

TGIF.  I wish it was warm, I wish it was warm…
Here is a sunrise from Miami Beach.  This is a HDR  image.  I used NIK   software to process.  I like the added grain in the sand and water.  Makes me think warm.

Still cold in GA today.  I need to think of something warm.

hmmmm I remember when I took this image.  It was at sunrise on South Beach in Miami.  Warm morning.  Great sunrise.

I know I’m a little late for this but was on a long vacation.
This is the last sunset of 2012 as seen at my in-laws coffee farm in the hills of Medellin, Colombia, South America.

Just beautiful scenery.  I have lots of images I’ll be adding now I’m back in the USA.
