Good Morning

On the way home from a long night at work the sun started to rise and I stopped. It was the kind of setting that would make a pile of dog crap look good.
I had something a lot nicer to look at:


Edit: Okay, after a good nap, I'm curious about methods of displaying photos. The following is for my own experimentation, but I'd appreciate any good tips. I've never been happy with the small, low res uploads.
Trying to link an image directly from my 'onedrive' account looked like it worked well. ...until I looked at it on my wife's computer and saw that none of the direct links showed. Must have only worked on my computer because I was logged in.
Different sharing method:

Hmmm, seems like Microsoft prefers having people click links.
Now I have uploaded a few to a Flickr account. I'll see how that goes.

Ok, that works. My other issue is that I recently changed to a Windows-Lumia phone because I thought that the camera would be better than my old Samsung Galaxy S4. The photo above was taken with the old S4 after the battery died on the Lumia. I like the raw color, balance, clarity and contrast better than the Lumia for a point and shoot.
Here's two from the Lumia before it died:
1600 resolution

1024 resolution

Very nice shot. To bad you had to be leaving work to get it.

Great shot!
I love being able to see the morning fog. That's hard to capture.

Nice shot! Is the weather cooling off there? Here in SoCal still over 90F so not much fog in the forecast.

This is my favorite time of year here. The night time low may bump the upper 50s and the high might get to mid 80s. In Northeastern Oklahoma we get a nice foliage change from early October through mid-November.
My wife is from San Diego and I have no complaints about the weather there though.
