I started photographing the sunrise a few years ago, when I was still working. My 20th floor cubicle window faced east, and there were many winter mornings when I arrived at work just as the sun was peeking over the Cascade Range. 2011 was a particularly good year for those winter dawn photos—including the first three shown here.
Coincidentally, our house also has an east facing window, and there have been many winter mornings when I have looked out that window and immediately grabbed my camera and long lens to capture the incredible colors spread across the clouds.
Do you get amazing winter sunrises where you live? Whether you do or not, I hope you will enjoy seeing some of mine.
