The Sun Also Rises
As you know I adore sunsets. I love them so much that I have a series called "Pacific Sunsets." One of the reasons I favor sunsets over sunrises is because I'm never up in time to photograph the sun rising.
Today that changed.
Yesterday evening I was tired, so I decided to go to sleep. At 8:30 p.m. Along comes 3:00 a.m. and I'm finished sleeping and I'm now wide awake.
I work for a little while and then I decide that this rare occasion calls for a mandatory sunrise photo shoot! So, at 5:00 a.m. I pack up my gear, put the dog's jacket on her, and hop in the car.
It was cold and quiet out, with only a sprinkling of people here and there. The sky starting turning a beautiful blue color when I reached my overlook. And then there was the sun slowly rising over the hills, promising another day full of opportunities. It moved slowly and was mesmerizing to watch, almost like a miracle happening.
What a heavenly way to start my day.
