in the Bitterroot Valley, Montana

I am always enamored by the sunrises in the Bitterroot Valley. Since I live here and have an incredible view of the mountains, I wake up every morning and am able to watch the sun rise above the Sapphire mountains on the east side of the valley and start to shine upon the Bitterroot mountains that lie to the west. When I began conceptualizing this shoot, I was inspired by the colors of the sunrise, of the sun hitting the mountains and the awakening that comes with each new day. I have found the early morning is well worth it for the mood a sunrise evokes.
