One of the things I like most about our place at Echota on the Ridge is the long range view from our condo. We look northward towards Valle Crusis and the Watagua River valley. Many mornings the valleys are filled with river fog and the ridges and peaks look like islands in the ocean. I was in the mountains in early April to take advantage of the Delayed Harvest trout fishing and woke one morning to the most beautiful sunrise. There was a low bank of clouds and the sky was blue, yellow and crimson. I snapped a few pictures with my phone and this is my interpretation of that vista. I hope you enjoy it. I do not have enough frame molding to build a frame for it at the moment, but it is a half sheet watercolor, will be approximately 23"X30" when framed and available for purchase.
