January 2014 sunrise, new year sunrise

Catching the First Sunrise of 2014 – The Flipside of Staying Up Till Midnight.

Four years ago I wondered what it would be like to see the first sunrise of a new year in place of staying up till midnight on the New Years eve. Four years later it has become my favorite celebratory tradition. At 6:30 am it is quiet, calm, and dark. Slowly light seeps back into my world as joy for a new year full of possibilities and adventure fills my soul. Below are the photos I captured as the sun rose over San Elijo Laguna in California.

January 2014 sunrise, new year sunrise
At first the world is all silhouettes, and we are cold…
January 2014 sunrise, new year sunrise
slowly color seeps in…
January 2014 sunrise, new year sunrise
the world starts to glow…
January 2014 sunrise, new year sunrise
the sun peeks out over the horizon…
January 2014 sunrise, new year sunrise
and finally it is here.

A new day has dawned and we bask in the warmth of the sun.

You can’t pause life, whether tragic or triumphant, life is not waiting for you to succeed. It is here and now. It is and has been moving you forward all this time. It’s all UP TO YOU!
