I’m by no means a morning person. I am an ‘8am-coffee-robe’ person. I have realized though that by not being a morning person, and still getting up before dawn to make images like this, I must either really love photography, sunrises, or both. Yep, sunrises are a test of what activities are inline with my inner spirit. If I can get up early to do something, I must really love it. How about you? Is it easy for you to get up for a sunrise?
