noelcmn, could you describe this shot for me? (Post 99). Very interesting...
Hi MSD, thank you. It's a sunrise () at an Industrial site- a paper mill actually, en route to the Kruger National Park. Usually when I go to the Park, I leave early in the morning-around 04:00 and get to Mpumalanga, where this Sappi Paper Mill is found @ about sunrise. It creates such a stink-rotten old cabbage. As usual, there is always smoke rising from the mill, and I thought I would try to capture it, and put up with the stench. So that is the smoke, and a bit of the mountainous terrain in the background.

Here is one more suited to my lifestyle-taken outside my gate where I live.

Did someone mention a mill?

Four generally separate times of the year - the local (and defunct) Scott Paper Mill is one of my favorite subjects.

Sunrise over Phoenix AZ. Not a great foreground composition, but I was on my way into work the other day as this sunrise began to develop and I had to find a location quickly.

Thanks, noelcmn! Very interesting area. Would be nice to get to see many areas in Southern Africa if I get the chance some day.

Mt Shuksan and Picture lake sunrise.

A rare winter sunrise. Most of time Mt Shuksan is covered by clouds.
