Sometimes, you just get great light and color. Mother Nature can be your best friend. I am a big fan of early morning shooting, so when I was in Corpus Christi, TX for a little family vacation earlier this year, I made a point to get up early one morning (while the tourists were sleeping) and get some shots in the quiet stillness of dawn. I shot the sunrise from multiple spots, and definitely had planned to find some cool boats to get some reflection shots too. Luckily, it's a small town and everything is pretty close together!
