The fun thing about creating these Sunrises is everything depends upon each other:
The time you set the alarm, the time it takes to get out of the house: whether in darkness or in shimmering light, the spot you'll find:
Sometimes the spot is somehow occupied, or otherwise things 'happen'.
Sometimes the 'losses' of some days make for 'Intention' on new days.
So, here I intended to be there REALLY REALLY early. To paint the darkness. It is dark then, setting up. But not always. It depends! :)

Here you see the effect of a light frame:
see how dark the painting is, like it is in the very early morning.
