Hey everyone, how’s it going?  Well for me it’s up early in the darkness. But the other morning I was rewarded with a very pretty sunrise as I looked out the window just before I left for work.  So I grabbed my camera and took these two shots.  The thing you have to remember about a sunrise or sunset is that they move fast!  The amazing color of this particular morning only lasted about five minutes.  So if you are lucky enough to see something like this make sure you grab your camera and start shooting immediately.


But the great thing about a nice sunrise or sunset is that it happens every single day of the year. Color like this always exists unless it is completely overcast with heavy clouds. The reason why most people don’t see these beautiful scenes is because we are all so busy first thing in the morning getting ready for the day and there are many things in the way of the view. Houses, trees, hills, big buildings all block the horizon. Many times this color only shows up low on the horizon.  So if you can get up high to look down on the horizon you will see this.  The best place is at the beach in a high rise hotel or up on a mountain top.  I am constantly on the outlook for new spots to catch a nice sunrise or sunset.


So keep your eyes peeled to the sky and happy hunting.
