Discovery Point Sunrise

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Clouds are a good thing at Crater Lake, because they lead to sunrises like this. This shot was taken on a July weekend in 2011. I intentionally went to Crater Lake that weekend because rain was in the forecast. Rain means clouds and clouds mean dramatic shots like this one.

What an excellent sunrise photo from Pt. Sunrise.

Thanks for the kind comment, Ralph. I was lucky that day. Most of the photographers at Crater Lake stayed at the campground that day because it looked too cloudy. Too bad for them.

Wonderful sunrise photo. I will be going to Crater and will definitely use your inspiration to try this point for sunrise. Thanks for sharing your photos.
