I decided at the last moment try and take a few photos of yesterday’s sunrise. When I got to the top of Pamplico Drive, the sky just above the horizon was blaring. It was not where I intended to go, but I knew I wouldn’t make it to that spot before the sun showed itself. So I pulled over, grabbed my tripod and climbed the small hill to this spot.

Sunrise In The Weeds

I don’t usually shoot deep in the thick of the brush, but I was in a hurry and wanted to get the sky at this color, so I did. I’m happy with the result, obviously. I eventually dropped the legs and took a more typical shot from this location. It’s clear I’m going to want to spend some more time in the weeds, however.
