About a week ago, I made two trips to a local hilltop viewpoint, overlooking Lake Hodges, Rancho Bernardo, Poway, and Mount Woodson. I spent about an hour there each time, watching the predawn glow of blue hour turn to gold and finally for the sun to rise. Both days provided a layer of high clouds that caught the glow and reflected in the lake and landscape. On my first trip, I was with another photographer friend, Alexander Kunz, who also got some great photos and posted here: Del Dios Highlands Dawn.

On previous visits, there were low clouds on the lake and in the valley below. I was able to climb above the clouds to the lookout. You can view other posts from this location here; Sunrise at Del Dios Highlands (2019) and Sage and Sunrise (2020).
