I was there and didn't see it!
Apr 1, 2012

This morning I rose before dawn and headed back to the location I have found for shooting wildflowers and sunrises... I was adjusting the shutter speed, ISO, focal length and just firing off shots rapidly because these sunrises don't give you a second chance and they only last a short time.

I did not see this shot until I got home and began to download the photos to my computer. I saw it in realtime but it did not dawn on me (pardon the pun) how beautiful this morning's sunrise was until I looked at this shot. I was too busy fussing with the camera to do what I should have done... enjoy the moment. What a beautiful planet we live on... and this shot and ones like it are the reason I venture out in the dark to wait for a sunrise.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
