You may have noticed, if you’ve been following me, that I post something entirely different from a series when I have more recent photos to share. For instance, I am currently running a Yosemite series, but I also shared some sunset photos that I took recently. And I will continue to do so. But since it is Thursday, it occurred to me that maybe I should post one of those #TBT photos. I took this particular photo just over a year ago, and it was one of the earlier shots from my sunrise series that lasted for about six months when I was obsessed with sunrise. I didn’t bracket any of the shots, let alone I didn’t even post process them in Adobe Photoshop then. All done in Adobe Lightroom, simply because I had not been not introduced to HDR (High Dynamic Range) yet then. As we all know, not every morning is promised with such a gorgeous sunrise. But if you are not there to see whether or not you are to be presented with one, how else could you know that it’d be the case? So, I went out there every morning. Well, almost every morning. I skipped those morning when either it rained or the marine layer was so thick that the foghorn went off like crazy. And then in some lucky mornings the clouds put on a crazy, jaw-dropping sunrise show.
