Two years ago today I happened to be at a friend's place in Parksville and since we arrived after dark I had absolutely no idea what was there. I luckily woke up at 4:45am and glanced out a window. It was still dark but I knew something great was going to happen.
I think this may be the only sunrise I've ever shot. The first photograph was shot around 5am. The second one was probably 5:30 or 5:45am. It was fast. I have a bunch of shots in between and later, just no time or room to put the full sequence together.
My photography tip today is wake yourself up early some morning and take a crack a shooting the sunrise. It's an invigorating experience.
