The morning was completely overcast. Should I get up to catch the sunrise? I figured there was only a 10% chance that the sunrise would “Happen”. A 10% chance was too much to leave to chance. I HAD to.
As I hiked up the mountain I wondered if I should have stayed home. When I got to the spot, I set up my CRAPPY tripod. Then the sun started to reflect off the clouds and I knew it was going to “Happen”.
Excitement and anticipation of what’s to come is the feeling every photographer gets when his dedication pays off. Oh man, was I glad that I had got out of the house this morning!
