What a beautiful morning to stay awake! I climbed Vista after sunset and I descended at sunrise. What an incredible view. I love the colors that this HDR pano came out with, but they are not as intense as the actual colors. I do not care for over saturation, but at sunrise the colors were so intense it was unreal!
