This is the sunrise before Brent and I began our hike across the Pololu Valley. The views were wonderful once we got where we were going, but the photographic opportunities were less than plentiful.

For this photo I was going for something a little more muted and pastel-like. The result is a photo that doesn't pop with contrast, but provides a more serene atmosphere.

This photo looks best with the gray background.

That's definitely what I'd call a big sky. Amazing color tones.

It is really the sunrise and the sunset that I'd like most to capture. Especially when I am the beach.. This is a nice shot though.
