While on a camping trip in Provincetown this summer, I decided to get up before sunrise to catch the good light. The dunes are beautiful at that time of day and I spent several hours wandering around before returning to my tent to get a little more shuteye.
I decided to start the year off with a trip to Cadillac Mountain in Maine to catch the first the sunrise on the continental U.S. of 2015.
We did a dry run the day before to check out the trail and see the sunset.
On the morning of the first, we were joined by many other people who hunkered down in between the rocks to wait for the sunrise.
With temperatures around 15 degrees Fahrenheit and a windchill of 18 below it was a long wait...
