Spectacular Sunrise Photos From Marc Crumpler

Local Wildlife and Landscape Photographer Marc Crumpler sent these spectacular photos he took on Sept. 1, 2016. 

Marc has shot impressive photos of the Los Vaqueros area before, and these are on par with the spectacular shots he has shown us in the past.  He left his home in Livermore at 4:30 in the morning to be ready for the sunrise and drove to Morgan Territory on the ridge above Los Vaqueros and hiked in. 

" I had checked the weather forecast the day before, so had a pretty good idea there would be low clouds and fog over Los Vaqueros," he said. " The tricky part is you never know how far the low clouds will flow in over the reservoir. Seems like every day is different. A couple of times I was unlucky when fog covered everything. On this day, conditions were almost perfect. I was above the clouds and it was very clear instead of hazy as it can be in summer."
