Sunrise Awakening


 

 

 

Waking up to photograph the sunrise is, for me,

a small victory.

This is a favorite sunrise awakening with my friend, Tina, of Travels and Trifles, shooting the famous Towers at Torres Del Paine National Park in Chile.

Taken by our guide, it is one of my favorite photography memories. We were bleary-eyed and thrilled. 

Happy Birthday to Tina who celebrates today!
