Sunrises aren't always about the brillant streaks of orange and red across the sky. Sometimes, when the sun is playing hard to get, the subtle colors are just enough to beautify the sky.
I had gone to Plum Island many times waiting for a morning like this. I knew from my research that the morning had the potential to explode like this, but it wasn't until I drove through Newburyport and got my first glimpse of the sky that I knew it was going to happen. This is a pathway that I have shot many times, some images publishable, some not. I can't tell you how joyful it was to see everything come together as it did this morning.
