A Kilroy Sunrise!

Photography by Kilroy_60
I have posted many photographs of sunsets. This is the first sunrise I've shot since I was at Cape Cod a year ago!

I need to do a bit of scouting to find a good place to wait for the sun to come up. I do have an idea, but I am not oriented to where the sun rises or sets there. The next consideration, of course, is whether there is "public property" to stand on where I can shoot.

The thing I'd love to find for shooting is a foreground with water. I was really spoiled being at Cape Cod in terms of that. I know I'll never replicate that, but I'm working on it.

I'd like to find some places that have a more interesting horizon than where I've been shooting my sunsets. The challenge is that it really helps if you don't have to travel far to shoot. As I've said before, the sun always goes down...but there's not necessarily a sunset.

That's the one thing that makes it much easier to "chase" opportunities to photograph sunsets than sunrises. You get a preview of the sunset; with the sunrise there is a great deal more faith required. Such a tough life for a photographer. 8-)

The other morning while driving to work, the moon was a huge glowing golden orange orb in the western horizon. It took my breath away.
