Last week in Olympia, we had a few days where we were getting beautiful sunrises. The mornings were cold, mostly clear with some clouds and a light fog which created a bright golden glow as the sun would rise. I love these mornings because they provide the best opportunities to photograph the sunrise, which is my favorite subject to photograph.
I ventured out to Nisqually early on Thursday, January 12th to try and capture the morning light and was rewarded with one of the nicest sunrises I’ve seen in a long time.
Taken just before the sun peeked over the horizon, the light created two great silhouettes of Mt. Rainier and of the Nisqually dock. Also, the shadows from the clouds near Rainier added a special touch to the photo.
Some mornings, it is worth it to miss a few hours of work and venture out to capture a moment which will live with you forever. This cold morning side trip made my whole day.
