The Early Bird Catches the Sunrise!

Sunrise over the Atlantic as seen from Mayport, Florida, Naval Station
St. Augustine Beach, Florida

I’m a (very) early riser. On days that I go out for photoshoots, I am often up and out well before sunrise to get pictures of the sunrise from different places. Frequently, I’m there before sunrise during the blue hour to get shots before the sun rises. Please take a look at my post ” l’heure bleue, French for The Blue Hour ” for several of those photos.

Here are a couple of my favorite sunrise photos. [Click on a Photo to Enlarge It!]

l’heure bleue, French for The Blue Hour

Wikipedia defines “The Blue Hour” as:

The blue hour (from French l’heure bleue) is the period of twilight early in the dawn each morning and late in the dusk each evening, during the nautical twilight phase, when the Sun is at a significant depth below the horizon and when the residual, indirect sunlight takes on a predominantly blue shade.

A recent early-morning photo shoot in Green Cove Springs on The St. Johns River in Florida, reminded me of how much I love to be outdoors with my cameras at that time of day. Here are a couple of my photographs from that shoot as well as several more from other locations.
