Sometimes it's a simple as...
... a beautiful sunrise.
Yesterday, I had to work the "Behind the Veil" Wedding show in Savannah for Ashley Rhodes Events. It was such a fun show! But pictures, and stories to come much later!
What I'm focusing on today is what I had to drive through to get there.
Set up was at 8 am, that means I had to meet Ashley in Beaufort at 7, which put me leaving my house at 6, waking up at 5:30. Granted, I was exhausted, but I had the most beautiful sight on my drive through.
A sunrise over the Broad River. Oh how my heart was crying for me to jump out of the car and take pictures, but I felt as if I was on a time crunch. Luckily (well in my case,) Ashley was running very late. I drove to the nearest water way area (which happened to be Dockside, this lovely restaurant on the river where boats dock). And I photographed my little heart out.
So is it just me? Or is that totally worth waking up super early for? It's so different than a sunset and I didn't expect it to be nearly as vibrant or as beautiful. I just guess I don't ever think of waking up to cotton candy skies.
As I was driving through, I text Justin (oops! no, not texting and driving. I was at a stop light) saying "I swear the sunrise is so much better than a sunset". "Agreed" he replied. I guess when he has to go to work at the wee hours of the morning he gets to experience the same thing.
It almost makes me want to be like a "sunrise chaser". You know like tornado chasers...well same concept but with a camera and just sunrises in different locations. Okay, maybe not a great profession, but I'll try to do it whenever the opportunity arises.
Well that's that.
Please don't forget the giveaway.
Today is your last chance! So go here and I will announce the winner tomorrow when I crawl (unwillingly) out of bed! Any comments time stamped after 12:00 am will not be considered.
Back to school work I go (unwillingly as well).
