Some sunrise weeks are more frustrating than others, this being one of them. It began with a debacle involving icy water and was a week short on inspiration. Additionally, the workflow componenent became a headache when instead of publishing a couple quick photos, Lightroom decided it was necessary to republish all 2019 photos, a process that took about 10 hours.

Oddly, on Thursday, I forgot to grab my tripod on my way out the door. Something that hasn’t really happened in probably two years.

And this Drop, No. 9, has been the most difficult so far. For no other reason than it just moved slower.

However, it was interrupated by a wonderful weekend where I found myself in Wisconsin for two sunrises.

Going back through some old photos reminds me of some better sunrise weeks, filled with a little more direction and purpose.

A not entirely arbitrary score of this drop: 4.3/10
