I awoke bright and early this morning with photographic intent. I’m usually an early riser, but with the purpose of beginning my work day. Finally, I have a morning when I can escape the schedule and sit in the dark and wait for the sun to show it’s beautiful face. I left with plenty of time before sunrise, so I stopped downtown just long enough to take a few shots of the Boise Christmas tree while it was still lit. Then I headed up to Table Rock and enjoyed the company of a few deer. At last the sun began peeking out. If I make another trip here soon, I will likely set up the camera for a time lapse shoot. The clouds steadily grew out of the valley and over the course of the hour or so, overtook me by crawling its way up through the fingers of the mountain. It would make a beautiful time lapse video.
