It's way easier to plan on a sunset shoot. Sunrises, on the other hand, are a bit of a gamble. You just don't know for sure what the sun, clouds, colors or light are going to be like when the sun finally shows up.
The other day we were staying in Orange County and I got up when it was still "dark o'clock" so I could make it to the beach before the whole sunrise thing got started.
I've actually done this before at different locations with no spectacular outcome. But this time, oh this time, it was worth the trip.
Take a risk this week. Try something that stretches you out of your comfort zone. Do something where you don't have total control. Then, just have fun and enjoy the journey. You might be surprised!!
