And I almost missed it…

I woke up this morning just after 5 for no good reason and decided to take advantage of the early wake up with a photo outing. I quickly scouted out the location of the sunrise as well as predicted cloud cover and didn’t hold too much hope for a nice showing but drove down to the State Street landing anyway.

I arrived too early but was treated to a nice orange dawn that then seemed to fizzle out just as the sun rose into a bank of clouds. I picked up the tripod and camera and started walking to the car when I did what I have learned to always do – look back just in case.

Well, sure enough, the sunrise had taken form during a very short walk and I quickly headed down to the float and captured a few compositions with this great light. Figured this might make a nice start with a gameday sunrise as tonights Pats-Buccs game is all the news has talked about for the week.

Enjoy the day!
