Musings [75 words]

Chasing the sun, or chasing the run? On mornings like this you had better hope you get it right on the first click of the shutter. Because after that it's nothing but wet lenses that's impossible to keep dry for much more than a second. As if the rain wasn't enough, the wind was blowing mist nearly sidewise right in my direction. It was a morning to feel the strength and power of Lake Superior.

Outtakes

Fuel more Sunrises

There is plenty more to come from Year of the Sunrise. You can always add a cup of coffee to keep me going strong in the mornings, or a tank of gas to get me to some new places, as the sun keeps rising.
