I love and hate sunrises; photographing them that is. I can get up with the early birds to go to work, but if I have a vacation day, I like to sleep in. But do that and I will miss the sunrise.
I actually got up early most mornings of my last vacation and shot the sunrise, each morning from a different location. This spot by the Pensacola Beach Fishing Pier was one of my favorites. It was loud, since the surf was rough, but quiet at the same time. Though the sound of the waves are always constant, they are relaxing, and you soon forget to listen for anything else. It’s just you, the surf and a rising sun.
I’m going to have to get up early more often.
