That is an amazing sunrise and sunset. I love the third sunrise photo with the sun just risen, and the third sunset photo with the streams of light is very impressive.

In answer to Manang Kim...yes we do live at a higher elevation here in the mountains...we live right on top of the Eastern Continental Divide...although not at the Highest elevation on the Divide.
