Sunrise in Paradise

Montague, MA

This is another one of those captures that lived in my mind for years. The sun rises over the top of this waterfall for a couple of months every year. Until this year the conditions (enough water flow, green foliage, clear skies and no fog in the valley have not lined up for me. I made a couple of attempts last month but fog blocked the sun. On this morning I was exhausted after a magical night of hanging with the Milky Way when I realized I had a shot at the waterfall. Sleep?? Later!!!! One more cup of coffee and off I went. I arrived just before the sun started burning through the trees!! This combination of conditions might not happen again for years!!!...then again it might happen tomorrow 😊 I love chasing light!!!
