I have been meaning to get out in time for sunrise in a while but mornings are not naturally my thing. Leaping out of bed was not the easiest at half five, but I forced myself up and out of the house. It was lighter than I expected already, but luckily the roads were clear. I hiked up as fast as I could. The image I had imagined was not what I saw. A thick mist covered the fields and stopped the early morning light. I changed my focus.
As the sun started burning through it eventually hit the hills and cast the kind of soft light I was hoping for. It was not perfect but I think it is worth getting out of bed for. The weather was not ideal so I will try again soon.
These are the highlights.
