There are a lot of reasons to get up and shoot the sunrise, and probably at least one good reason not to! But I love shooting that time of day. Everything is still and quiet, and it often feels like you have a place all to yourself.
I got up and out early one morning when we took a family trip last summer down to the Texas coast. We were staying at a place outside of Port Aransas, TX known as Cinnamon Shore. It's a beautiful neighborhood, right on the beach, and has all these wonderfully beautiful houses for rent.
As you can see, that morning I was treated to an incredible cloud formation, perfect light, and crisp reflections due to the lack of wind. All around it was a winner!
