Saturday Morning Sunrise

Yesterday morning I was up before the sun and caught this sunrise at the end of my street.  What was really interesting was how the clouds seemed to swirl over the mountains.

It was so fiery and really very lovely.  So I turned it into a mandala yesterday evening.

I only used 8 repeats this time or 4 mirror images.  The background I used another picture of the sunrise with a color fill over it with the opacity dropped so you could still see the texture of the clouds.

This one I feel is not a restful mandala.  It has a lot of energy in it, but am pleased with with way it turned out.  I may take it and play with changing the colors in it.
