A beautiful morning where I actually got my butt moving and out the door. I wasn’t positive of my destination as I climbed into the car but I wanted to catch the sunrise or at the very least the wonderful blue hour before the sun breaks the horizon. I took a gamble that the Hinckley Reservoir would be almost full considering all the rain we have been having and it did pay off.
There was a nice layer of clouds in the sky to grab the pre-dawn color and the location of the sunrise allowed me to get a nice contrast between the approaching morning light and the darker, cooler tones still trapped behind the pillars. It doesn’t hurt that the reservoir is only 20 minutes from the house!
