Nobody likes to crawl out of bed in the early hours on a freezing cold winter day, and when I say 'nobody' I mean me specifically. I really am not a morning person. Sure, once I'm up and about then I'm fine, but getting up before the sun just doesn't fit my circadian rhythm. I'll stay up late, as late as you like. I'll shoot sunset in the mountains, and then hang around in the dark, well beyond midnight shooting the stars and milky way until they are gone, I am, undoubtedly, a night owl.
So, when I rose early in December 2018 I surprised myself by deciding to go shoot sunrise over the city of Calgary while it was -25 degrees. I have made a previous blog post about that morning, and at that time I made mention of the telephoto shots I had created with the 70-200 mm.
I intended to show some at a later date, so here we are eighteen months later, and I am finally getting around to it. I chose this image to share, showing the dark skies bathed in moonlight and the very first glow of sunrise on the buildings below. Sometimes a cold winters morning isn't so horrible is it.
