Dawn

A rare color image from me ... I wanted to show my wife why I wake up so early to go shoot. Even I was startled by the lovely color on the horizon.

 

You can't really see a proper sunrise in the SF bay area as the east bay hills obscure the horizon line. It was quite a serene moment, and people out for an early morning walk stopped for several minutes just to take it all in. The typical urban soundtrack wasn't on yet, just this incredible natural visual sight unfolding. This image captures the reason why sunrise is my favorite time of day.
