When you decide to get up early and shoot sunrise are you disappointed when a nice sunrise is elusive? I must admit that I am, but at the same time I quickly shift gears and look for what is right with the scene rather than what is wrong. On the first morning in Cape May this past October, we were on the beach while it was still dark and as dawn approached we quickly realized that we were not going to have much of a sunrise. We just shifted our mindset and started working on long exposures to capture the movement of the clouds and waves. While I think pre-visualization is important, you must also be willing to embrace what is right with the scene and not let your disappointment detract from the creative process.
