Yesterday morning I went out to shoot sunrise pictures. For the first time ever, I didn’t take a single picture.
The cloud cover was so heavy, I couldn’t see when the sun actually rose. About a half-and-hour after the sun supposedly made its way into the sky, it was noticeably brighter outside. By that point, however, I had given up and made my way back home.
As the sun dipped lower in the sky at the end of the day, I decided to grab my gear and head back out for sunset. There weren’t many clouds in the sky, so I knew I wouldn’t get any crazy-bright colors, but I hadn’t been to Montrose Harbor in Chicago to take pictures at sunset before.
It was a quiet and peaceful night, and I only took about a dozen pictures. It was nice to get out, however, and make up for the morning’s lack-of-photos.
