I am not an early riser, unless it's for work I don't get up when it is still dark outside. This particular morning I set my alarm with a back up alarm and maybe had my wife set a back up to the back up. I now have a new appreciation for photographers who get up and embrace the golden hour, what a magical time. As the sun was cresting I found someone else that was not an early riser and quite comfy in this spot...I'm like "Dude I get it, it's early why are we even awake?" I have never seen sunlight on a subject like this and it was breathtaking. This Red Fox was just chilling and was not bothered by my caffeine-less awakening. We made eye contact (without the camera) and just stared at each other for what felt like an eternity....just epic.
