FRISCO — I raced out of the house Wednesday morning right after getting my son out the door to catch the school bus, sensing that the arrangement of clouds could lead to a brilliant sunrise. These days, the timing is pretty close — Dylan leaves at 7 a.m. to catch the bus at 7:05 and the sun comes up just a few minutes later. That means I can’t go too far, otherwise I’ll be on the road when that golden moment arrives.
And it’s just as well; there a a few spots along Dillon Reservoir where I know the angles, where the light will appear and I’m happy to revisit them in the quest to improve my photography. All the images in this post were taken within a 30-minute span and I was working fast to shoot the light and colors that changed dynamically, moment to moment.
