This past trip I did actually set an alarm and got up and to the location before sunrise. These pictures are my reward. Light is so different in the morning hours, the time that photographers call the golden hour.
1 John 1:5 says,"This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him we have no darkness."
As a photographer I am learning the characteristics of light and that has made this verse mean so much more to me. Light changes the color of things - like God changes us. Light has direction. God will direct our paths - and lead us to beautiful places like the lake at sunrise.
Below are some more pictures I took at sunrise that morning.
