Sunrise is a time, I tend to miss. I’m a bit of a late sleeper and having lived in the western part of the US my entire life, the sunsets are usually more memorable. The sun does rise over the mountains and it can be spectacular, but unless I’m off on an early morning commute I usually miss them.
I saw this iron work motif and immediately thought sunrise, not sunset but sunrise. Strange but true. I love the graphic feel of the stark white iron work against the soft sunrise colors. I digitally manipulated the background to bring in the colors I wanted but aimed to keep a subtle, soft feeling to the colors.
