The trouble with getting up early for a sunrise here in Northern California, is that it's much harder to predict the outcome. We learned that lesson once again this morning.
After seeing beautiful red sunset in LAX last night as I was travelling back home, and hearing that my buddy Jim Patterson saw the same show in Santa Cruz, we decided to get up early for sunrise. Brave and always cheerful Kendra joined us. Not too shocking, but as it always happens, there was hardly any color this morning. With hot days, the fog still covers the shore overnight. Nonetheless, after good chat over coffee and hot chocolate, we drove over to one of the spots Jim knows. It's not ideal for either sunrise or sunset due to the angle of these rocks, but suitable for B&W.
Nice thing about 6am on Saturday - no other photographers around.
