Nature Photo Challenge Day #3

Helena Valley Reservoir is about five miles from my house.  The reservoir was established as a regulating agent for the valley irrigation system and a supply reserve for Helena’s municipal water.  The reservoir is popular with fishermen and occasional picnickers who take advantage of day-use spots along the shore.
I have featured the reservoir in many photographs.  Today, I am reposting a sunrise I captured in June of 2011.  The morning I captured this photograph, I drove to the reservoir in darkness with the express purpose of capturing sunrise.  At the time, we had experienced several days of spectacular sunrise events.  I recall standing at the shore expressing “Wow!  Wow!  Wow!” as I snapped images.
