I often wake up well before sunrise when Im on vacation. I typically find myself alone in the dark either somewhere on a beach or high up on a mountain top. The quiet calms me and helps recenter me. On this particular morning I set up my shot and then just laid there in the sand looking at the sky. There was almost no noise from the ocean as it was completely still. I even dosed off a bit, luckily I was somewhat coherent and the sun began to illuminate the beautiful scene in front of me.
