All photography lovers know the best light to shoot in is the golden light at sunrise and sunset. I love shooting but I must admit getting up before the crack of dawn isn't my favorite thing to do. When I travel I always catch a sunrise and sunset but at home...oh my---the challenge!
A few days ago I was up before the roosters crow on my way to Joshua Tree to shoot the sunrise with friends. But, I had a mind battle about going there in the dark...would there be snakes?critters? and imagined dangers hiking in the dark??? Funny I had just blogged about judging, assuming, expectations and here I was twirling the false expectations in my mind.
Six of us hiked in the dark,cameras in hand, to Barker dam. Cold, dark, with a glimpse of the sunrise beginning...flashlights and guess what---no critters-lol it's too cold for snakes! The sun came up and the beauty was breathtaking! Golden light hit the rock formations, pink in the sky, tranquil, and exquisite. I thought, any problems I have are so insignificant, so small when I have such a grand gift right here, free for anyone to enjoy. I am grateful.
So now if I mind twirl false expectations I'll remember this grand morning. AND yes I will be up before the crack of dawn again with camera in hand to see what beautiful lesson I learn as the day arrives.
Get ready to shoot the sunrise 30 minutes before sunrise and a sunset 30 minutes before sunset.
