Early Autumn Colorful Clouds at Dawn.

Things seem to be aligned near the spring and autumn equinox that the clouds to the east at dawn light up with intense colors. High level smoke dust from the forest fires out west may also be contributing to the colorful displays this year. I’ve been checking early every morning, but the skies were clear. This morning it was different, so I ran out and disturbed the deer in the backyard to get this panorama (11415 x 4520 pixel = 38″ x 15″ print @ 300 dpi) .
