Outfit: Lovin’ in the Sun

Remember how last time, I went out to take pictures really early in the morning so I wouldn’t be disturbed and ended up being photobombed by a bunch of Tai Chi-ers?  Well, the day after that, I thought I’d try taking some good sunrise pics again.

Once more, I woke up at 5:30 a.m., got ready, and was on the road by 6.  I drove all the way out to Naperville, which is a good 30-40 minute drive.  I wanted to shoot at this pretty covered bridge over the DuPage River, and I knew I’d never have a chance at getting a good shot at any other time of day.  The river has a walking path beside it, and it’s not long after sunrise that it gets packed with people strolling the shoreline.  When I pulled into a spot near the riverbank, I scanned the horizon and spent a few moments taking in the sight of the sun slowly making its way above my head.  The colors were so striking–saturated oranges and yellows, muted purples and blues all stacked atop each other.  I couldn’t wait to hop out of the car and get cracking.  I turned to pick up my camera, and…

It was gone.  I left it at home.

After I laughed at myself a little, I hit the road again, picked up my camera, and went to one of my favorite forest preserves nearby to see if I could still get some good sunshine in these pictures.  Happily, the lighting was wonderful and I was even able to finally get some good sunflare shots!  I’m really excited about how these turned out, and while I don’t believe in signs, man, I think it turned out to be a great thing that I ended up shooting here.
