    Smokey skies here recently made for a couple mornings of dramatic sunrise scenes. This is one of them. Dawn breaking over Mt Timpanogos, distant trees sillhouetted against the disc of the sun.

    No need for fancy "incentives", "spiffs", or any of that noise. Keep it simple. Never part out your...
