Sometimes time passes by so quickly – like today realizing that we are already a month and a half through 2016. I feel almost shell shocked at how fast time is passing. But then there are moments where time slows down and you can take it all in – the sights, the smells, the sounds.
The world is overflowing with sunrise and sunset pictures. They happen every day, all around the world, and most of the 7 billion people of the planet find them pretty and take snapshots. Nonetheless, I find myself particularly drawn to sunrise and sunsets. I often snap pictures with my cell phone camera and send them to my dad – he’s a nature guy. Being a night owl, I probably have seen more sunsets than sunrises. But sunrise is a beautiful time of day. The end of the darkness of night, the warmth of the sun, the hope of what a new day can bring. As a photographer, the quickly changing light is like a playground. The scene you photographed one way looked totally different just 15 minutes later. I have watched the sunrise over the ocean three times in my life. It has been a joy each time.
