Sizzling Summer Solstice Sunrise

This is my third year of capturing the very early solstice sunrise; sunrise was predicted at 5:52 a.m. so I was on my way to the bay at ~5:20. With a cloudless sky, it wasn't the most interesting sunrise I've ever captured in this location, but some nice golden colors developed.

 

It wasn't actually sizzling yet; probably about 62 degrees when I shot this, but a cloudless / fogless start means a hot day.

 

I think I'll scout out a new location for next year, though that will mean getting up even earlier !
