I live close to the beach and could walk but this early in the morning it is nice to grab the paintbox and hop on my bike. Gets your toes in the sand a little quicker and allowed me to get setup on time to catch the perfect moment of the morning. There is something about a sunrise that i love. The rest of the world is still sleeping, everything is so quiet and peaceful. Sunsets are just as beautiful but sometimes you have to share them with a crowd.
