I haven’t gotten up for a sunrise in a LONG time, but at the last last weekend I made a point of it. I was “off the grid” to a degree, and actually went to bed at a decent hour with my family while we camped. I got up in time to stagger over to the shoreline and nab a few shots. Sunrises have been few and far between for me, so i was determined to work this one over completely.
I love how the gold and blue offset each other – they are, after all complementary – and the fog just rolled lazily across the water. I needed this kind of peace and quiet. The fam was still all sacked out, so it was just me and the various critters.
With the sun risen, the light cast changed entirely and I spun the camera around to catch some nice morning color and the last of the fog on the lake. Then I did what any camping dad would do…I sauntered back to bed!
