Sunrise over the Rockies.

I'm not very comfortable with landscapes, so comments are welcome.

Thanks very much @janress, landscapes seem excessively hard to me.

I may try this again soon, it looks like my monitor needed calibrating.

Now I'm very comfortable with this.

If you have a tripod you could try to merge two shots one for the mountain (this one) and one to get more details on the road...

I like it, seeing this photo i wish i'd could go to Canada...

Maybe there is too much sky but i'm not sure...

Thanks for the comments Luca, I have not had a lot of success
with blending exposures from a tripod, but you can expose a
RAW file in different ways and then blend these exposures (it
looks like that is what I did here, I tag all these composites as
'Fake HDR' meaning I have made a bracket from one exposure).

After driving from Vancouver to Calgary and back, I was pretty
sick of highway, but the sun coming up over the Rockies was
fairly stunning so I stopped and made some exposures.

I like pictures that are not always taken with a cookie cutter, this is just fine.
