Musings [74 words]

There's one subtle difference between a sunrise and sunset I've been thinking about, especially as the days get colder.

Constantly I'm asked, “Why didn't you do sunrises?” Well, that's a whole lot more to that. And c'mon, it's obvious.

That subtle different is the sunrise marks the beginning the day, opportunity, brightness, and growing. You're out there and feel the day warming up. You're literally watching it begin, and that makes all the difference.

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.
