I’ve made it a point the last few years to go out on the morning of my birthday to capture the sunrise.  As I was born in mid-February, that means I have a pretty good chance of capturing a snow filled scene.  Such was the case in 2014.

On February 19, I headed out with a plan to capture a snowy sunrise at Castle Rock.  It had snowed the night before and I hoped the snow would remain undisturbed for my morning shoot.  I was thrilled to see this blanket of snow at Castle Rock as well as the almost still waters.  I waited until the sun rose a bit above the horizon and then used the rocky formation to help form this sun star.
