Musings [60 words]

Is this even a sunrise photo? Does it matter if I choose not to face the sun and the horizon? I knew what it was, so I sought a bridge to hide beneath to keep my camera dry from the rain.

I still wonder, how long can inspiration last? For how many consecutive days can a single person feel inspired?

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.
