On the water's edge, waiting for sunrise

East Gator Creek Road at sunriseEast Gator Creek Road at sunrise, November 2012

On the water’s edge, watching the sun rise.
Distant clouds add color and rays to a magnificent moment.
Reflected sunlight reaching around a rock close to shore, creates golden ripples.

I stand – tripod steady; camera set;  release in hand.
Deciding which instant to save and relive later.

Did it matter?  Musing now, they are all marvelous moments.


I got up one morning almost four years ago at 4:30am to go out with my camera and make this photo.  I enjoyed making the photo.  I don’t really remember not enjoying the early wake up.  Lately, I’ve slept in.  I need to either go back to getting up early or turn into a sunset photographer.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Now, go make some photos!

  1. When I saw the title, but before I read the blog, I decided I would have to remark on the extraordinary and inspirational dedication you show to photography, pre-dawn starts included. So no backsliding, OK?!

    1. Thanks, Jeff. And you should know about photo challenges – you are one of the hardest working photographers I know. And you get some real killer shots.

I'd love to hear from you, Please leave a reply!
