I’m participating in the online adventure travel and photography magazine LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggers. This week’s challenge is Sunrise.

I LOVE sunrises. Don’t get me wrong, I love sunsets too, as they can bring a beautiful ending to a beautiful day. But there’s something really special about sunrises. No matter what happened the day before – good or bad – a sunrise says you have the opportunity to start fresh every single day. Pretty sunrises and sunsets are a challenge in San Diego, because they look a lot better with some clouds in the sky to help reflect the light. And San Diego doesn’t have that many clouds overall.

Here are some of my favorite sunrises I’ve been able to capture in the past year or so. You’ll notice the range of colors is quite broad, so you never know what the next sunrise will look like. Remember you can click on each image to see the photo in a larger format.

This photo below represents what a typical winter sunrise looks like in San Diego. Not too many clouds, and a mostly orange sky. I like it a lot.

I love this sunrise for a simple reason: its delicate colors. It doesn’t scream good morning, but rather whispers, hello, sunshine!

Not all sunrises are pink, orange or red. Some of them are mostly yellow and gray, like the one below. The sun tried very hard piercing through the clouds that day (and it worked).

In this next picture, the clouds looked like they were on fire that morning.

Some winter sunrises in San Diego can be very colorful, and very inspiring. You know your day is starting well if you can spot one of these.

  1. It does indeed look like the sky is on fire. I never see the sunrise, because I’m up before dark and down in my exercise room when the sun comes up. And on the weekends, I’m sleeping. 🙂 I guess I should give it a try sometime.

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
