Dawn, August 2009

This is one of my favorite shots from my recent trip to the States. Being a dyed in the wool night owl (how's that for a mixed metaphor?) I don't get to shoot sunrises very often so I took advantage of the inevitable first morning jetlag-induced O'dark thirty wakeup to grab my gear and walk down to the lake to try and catch the sunrise. It was getting lighter and lighter as I started walking faster and faster, but make it I did, and then shot image after image for the next hour, and what an hour it was. Here's another look at that same dawn, and there will be more to come later. I'm saving a few of my favorites to brighten up the dark winter months ahead. Worth the early morning dash, no?
