Remarkably, today’s sunrise was after 8AM. It feels incredibly late.

Lately, it’s not the mornings that are hard, it’s the nights. I long for a night where I have zero concern for the morning.

Sunrising felt incredibly difficult this morning. I really had to drag myself out of bed, then I couldn’t get the vantage point I wanted, and I couldn’t keep the lens dry.

I think it stems from a grumpy night. I’ve been craving time to spend with my thoughts, which just hasn’t been happening. And for weeks I’ve been trying to find a way to spend a couple days in The Porkies, or Ironwood, or The Keweenaw for some fall color sunrise photos. Even getting to the top of Hogback with a friend has been difficult with Fresh Coast and Plaidurday obligations the last couple weeks and for the next. When will I get some time to be with my thoughts and think and process? When will I get to all the other sunrise locations I’ve been missing out on? Next fall will be just as busy.

Ok, time to Fresh Coast.


Fuel more Sunrises

There is plenty more to come from Year of the Sunrise. You can always add a cup of coffee to keep me going strong in the mornings, or a tank of gas to get me to some new places, as the sun keeps rising.
