I have a love/hate relationship with sunrise photography. I hate getting up so early but I’m rarely disappointed that I did. I’m excited before I even leave my house. I always get to my location way before the sun is to come up so I can set up my gear. Then I have a few minutes to just enjoy the peace and solitude of the morning. At first light everything begins to change and you never know what colors are about to come out. This all happens, at least in my mind, so very fast. Before I know it, it’s time to pack up, go home and look at all the surprises in my photographs that the sunrise has brought.
