Sunrise over Columbia River, Chinook Landing, Fairview Oregon ©www.hoodphotography.com

Overnight Friday night into Saturday morning I could not sleep. When I noticed the light starting to come in through the curtains in my bedroom and I still had not had any luck catching the elusive ZZZ's, I got up, grabbed my camera and headed out to the Columbia River. I go here often to capture the sunset, but I am not a morning person by any stretch of the imagination, so capturing the sunrise was a whole new thing for me. And I am happy now that I did!

  1. Well, you certainly captured the beauty of the morning! I'm like you - hate the early mornings, but now the dog (year & a half) gets us up but I still take forever to actually "wake up."

  7. It's rare that I see a sunrise but when I travel I often wake up early and do enjoy seeing such a beautiful beginning to a new day.

  9. This is stunning, glad you got out to do that. One thing I have to give a try one of these days.

  10. Stunningly beautiful. I'm not a morning person either so the occasional experience of the stillness of early morning is extra special.
