Don't miss the sunrise!

February 24, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

It's a known fact....I am not a morning person. Given the option, I would rather work late into the night then get up early for work. However, as a photographer there are many times I will gladly get up early for a photo shoot or better yet, to photograph a sunrise. There are few times the world will look better than through the light of a sunrise or sunset. 

Sunrises and sunsets are equally epic. A time where the whole world seems to freeze in time for just a second. It takes just a matter of seconds to watch the sun spread it's golden rays across the land or to dip beyond the horizon and disappear from view. It is in those few seconds that I am reminded of the fact that time doesn't stop for anything and goes by so quickly. It reminds me to take the time I have, stop, and soak up the moment in all it's splendor. 

There is a saying that photographers are chasers of the light. In search of the perfect light for a picture photographers will go to some extreme measures. I myself have been found climbing on things, laying on the ground, hiking mountains, traipsing through brush, hanging upside down-almost-, or dragging myself out of bed at all ungodly hours of the night. Just for the perfect light, and perfect angle, for the best picture possible! People laugh at you and look at you strange sometimes...but it is worth the looks, jokes, and laughs to get the shot! 

I can't remember any time where I regretted getting up early to photograph a sunrise. I have to remind myself of this when my alarm goes off and I drag myself out from under the warm cozy covers.

On this particular sunrise alone, I think I took 200 pictures before, during, and after the sunrise! Here are 7 of my favorites.
This is the reason photographers should not miss the sunrise.
