Morning photo: Best sunrise?

Hard to pick just one!

FRISCO — OK, I admit, I’m a sunrise and sunset junkie. My favorite time to shoot pics is those golden crepuscular moments when the sky is dynamic and the whole world seems to light up in a sometimes other-worldly glow. And since it’s getting near the end of the year, I thought it would be a good time to look back through Summit Voice archives and pick out the year’s best dawn and dusk shots, only it wasn’t so easy. Every month of the year featured at least one or two spectacular scenes, and in some months, there were many, many more. So I decided to do two posts, starting with the first half of 2012.

Many of the images in Summit Voice photo essays are available in our Fine Art America online gallery, and there’s also Summit County gallery at our ImageKind website. You can also order images by contacting me directly at bberwyn@comcast.net. It’s a great way to support independent online journalism!
