Ribbons of smoke drifted along the rim of Oregon's Crater Lake as the sun blasted its way through, creating a red sunrise. While we were at Crater Lake National Park, I overheard a comment by a park employee that the lake has a different look each day. On this morning it had a subtle sheen that caught the red of the sunrise and the blue of the sky above. Oh, how I wish I could spend more mornings at beautiful Crater Lake.

This historic hotel was built in 1915 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. We stayed here on our recent trip to Oregon's Crater Lake National Park. The views of Crater Lake from the hotel are spectacular, and the food at the restaurant is delicious. The rooms are small with no TV or phone, and the wifi reception was described by a person at the front desk as "good-luck". The location is beyond compare for being able to get out early and catch the sunrise.

This picture was taken just past the Visitors Center at Crater Lake National Park on the Rim Trail. The haze catches the light and gives lovely warm tones in the sky and on the lake surface. The trees and the rim of the crater lead you to the center, where the pool of light draws you into the scene. The smoke provides a good contrast between the foreground and background. The tones in the front are dark, and in the distance we see muted colors that have a matte finish. This smokey light gives the overall tone of the image a soft and ethereal feeling.
