52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 5 – Sunrise

The Girl That Dreams Awake has challenged us this week with the topic of sunrise/sunset.

Since I have retired I tend to get up after the sun rises. This photo is from a few years ago during my morning rounds at the Golden Gate Bridge Toll Plaza.

    Gorgeous light and colors. Great shot, Allan.

    Stunning, Allan. Sunrises are certainly easier to capture when the days are shorter, even for a morning person such as myself. Sunrise shot times are fast approaching.

    Allan, you are on a roll with your nature shots. This (and others) belongs in a gallery.

      Thanks, Stephanie. I don’t consider myself a nature photographer, but that has been my focus this year and I am happy for the influence, and availability, of subject matter. If it wasn’t for The Lioness and her garden I would not have progressed to this level so quickly.

        Well, thank goodness for The Lioness’s influence!

        Amen, sister!

    Amazing how much drama there is on and near the bridge. What a spectacular moment.

      Thanks, Tom. I keep saying that I am going to go back and get more sunrises in the Presidio, but sleeping in is a more attractive option. Perhaps I will after the DST changes next month and we start getting into the dark mornings of winter.

      Thanks, Al. If it had not involved getting a paycheck I would have missed it that day.
