I like shooting Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park at sunrise or sunset. That shouldn’t be a surprise. The reasons are obvious, and every article ever written on photography and hiking include the suggestion to “get to your location before sunrise.” I did that on this day, but the sky was cloudless and the light seemed strange. So I stuck around for a bit, unsatisfied with the photos I had taken. The park has a completely different texture just after sunrise. That’s probably not a surprise either.
