  1. spectacular. Happy Winter Solstice.

  2. I love this sequence too Bo, perhaps even more than the evening ones. Wonderful to see!

  3. Gasp! I cannot wait to see a sunrise over the Grand Canyon!!! Wow, Bo, WOW. These photos are stellar!

  4. Can’t think of a better way to celebrate the shortest days. Such stunningly beautiful sunrises and sunsets of the canyon.

  5. Beautiful sequence, particularly how you captured the sun’s gradual illumination of the landscape.

  6. Maude Vang says:

    Something is special about the newness of the sunrise — an entire new day unfolds in front of us.

  7. Whoa, that is incredible. One of the many wonders of the world at sunrise. Watching the sun come up through my dorm room window is not quite such a wonderful marvel but this is quite awesome. Great photo sequence.
