The Insomniac's Sunrise


This is not your typical sunrise image but it’s one of the sunrise images I’m most proud of.

First light, Antarctica peninsula earlier this year - probably about four in the morning. Everyone still and sleeping.

I couldn’t sleep and went and sit on a rock on the edge of the water and just sat, alone. And listened to life. Ice cracking, penguins sleeping. Gentle whisper of the wind. The occasional pod of seals would swim by.

Eventually, light made her appearance and kissed me good morning. This is the sunrise that gave me all the feels.
