The Allure of Dawn

If you ever really thought about it, we probably see around five times more sunsets than sunrises in our lifetime.

In this world, sunsets have become a common gathering place for couples, friends and families. Because of this, they have become too familiar.

Sunsets are beautiful; so we plan our days around them to make sure we are there to see the sun slowly fall into the Earth.

Sunrises, though, are different.

They command a plan.

They require effort.

They ask you to slow down.

You have to be willing to see it, willing to wake up when it is still dark outside from the night before.

Sometimes even to be willing to stay up the entire night to witness their beauty.

And they are a mystery.

You never know what each sunrise will hold.

Cotton candy skies.

A slow gradient change.
