It was an early morning: we left at 4:00 a.m. to head out of town to shoot the sunrise over the desert.

This is looking south (why look just to the east, especially when the sunrise is less than expected?) toward the Sandia Mountains, the tops of which are shrouded.

  1. A sunrise through the gap below the clouds could have been quite nice, but I expect that this was a more satisfying picture.

    4:00am? Dedication to the blue hour? You know there is another blue hour which occurs at a more civilised time of day – it coincides nicely with cocktail hour. Wait. Is that why?


    • Peer pressure. That’s what it was, mostly. I didn’t want to be That Student who paid good money for the class then opted out of the hard parts!

      A cocktail-hour blue hour really suits my personal time clock a little better.


  2. Well, this was worth that ghastly hour for getting up! I love that feeling of desolation and wildness. I agree with Ephem, the cocktail hour is much more to my liking
