Sunrise at Cinnamon Shore

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!
