The morning that this was taken I didn't want to get up. My alarm went off far too early on a Saturday in late summer after a long week in the office. I pulled myself out of bed, threw on a pair of tights and a flannel shirt and headed out the door...my partner opted for the extra few hours of sleep. I sat alone along the shore in the darkness, my camp stove brewing coffee and aside from the odd 'hello' of fellow sunrise chasers bumping into one another...silence. The sky lightened and then this happened. The sun said good morning to the ten peaks and in this moment... it was all worth it.
In contrast, this morning I arrived in my office after yoga far before the sun came up, it was easy to get out of bed and I was replying to emails... I didn't even notice the sunrise until after it had happened.
