It seems like a very long time since I had the chance to photograph a remarkable sunrise. Lots of gray days and some heightened expectations. With the sunrises I have seen over the past seven months, my criteria for a beautiful sunrise have gone up. I almost missed it today. I went out of a coffee shop to get something from my car and saw a brilliant pink sky. By the time I drove to a decent place for a photo, much of the color had faded. But, the rising sun proved just as pretty.
