Sunrise at the rookery…

Since I live on the west coast of Florida it should’t come as any surprise that finding a spot to watch the sunset isn’t a hard thing to do.  Finding a spot close by with elements to compose a nice picture does make it a little harder though.  But so far it’s harder by far to find spots to take sunrise pictures.  So when it dawned on me to try the sunrise at the rookery I was out there in a flash.  Literally, because I only had about 20 minutes until sunrise and I was still in my pajamas.04-02-19rookerysunrise304-02-19rookerysunrise204-02-19rookerysunriseWhile I’m still in Florida I’ll have to venture a little further south for some especially pretty places for these photos.  I’m already feeling like I’m running out of time before I’ll be heading north again.  I remember thinking that once I didn’t have kids in school anymore then that’s when time would finally slow down.  I have no idea where I got that idea, but if anything the older I get the faster time just seems to slip away.   Maybe that’s why I keep trying to capture these moments.  Maybe I’m trying to freeze time one moment at a time.
