an early Brilliant Sunrise on the Lake in bronze and gold tones, the sky streaked with think diagonal cloud cover, the lake, slight waves that undulate from black to gold
Brilliant Sunrise on the Lake

The rich warm tones of winter mornings are fully on display December 18th, 2020 in this brilliant sunrise on the lake. I got to the lakes edge early, setting up my equipment slowly in the cold. I had planned on shooting the entire sun rise as it climbed in the sky over the water.

A new camera means more time in the field. Learning about how it responds to the landscapes I photograph. And with a subject as striking as this morning, it’s hard to think of a reason to leave before it was complete.

See all of the photographs, including other brilliant sunrise photos, from the last five years of the Lake Series here or follow along as I explore this and other projects on my instagram account.
