Laurel Mountain and Convict Lake in California's Eastern High Sierras.

I think this one was worth getting up at 4:30 AM. I have been a landscape photographer for over 50 years and this is my first 'purple' sunrise. This is my most popular image on Flickr.

 

Thanks to Cathie Joy Young for suggesting the name.

I created a Gallery called Extraordinary Light with some of the best landscape images I've found on flickr. Check it out.
