For the third time this month, we’ve set the alarm for 4:00 AM, and struck out into the night to catch sunrise atop Overlook Mountain. Most mornings clouds conspired to our East and the sun rose unannounced behind a purple curtain.

I have learned where to point my camera those mornings. Down! Deep into the Husdon Valley! The river is warm enough, and the air is accepting, so whispy little cloudlets a born to scurry across the valley, up the slopes, and make a break for the safety of Upstate deeper cover.

This week, though, there was a clear morning. And the show was to the West! Every ridge and crest of the Catskill Mountains took its turn to slowly glisten. There’s just not enough pixels.
