Lake Elsinore sunrise, Southern California

I had spent the night in "El Cariso" campground, facing a Fire Station on US Route 74 (the Ortega Highway) and I decided to go eat breakfast in Lake Elsinore, a few miles east. As I got on the crest just before Route 74 drops towards the lake, I saw this marvelous morning light. I found a safe place to stop and I remained there for 10 or 15 minutes, savoring every second of the experience, listening to the chirps of swallows and observing the play of light on the water below. Pentax K1 + DFA 28-105 mm HD.

The morning light creeping over the ridge creates an almost surreal look to this scene. Great contrast. Lots to like; fog, reflected light from the lake and the darkness surrounding the lake.

As usual, I was the only person admiring this spectacular show of beauty. I don't understand nobody else seemed to glimpse the uniqueness of the moment, as cars kept driving by on Route 74. "I'm lucky, I see" could be my motto ...

Best Regards
