The Dragon Drinks

Hvítserkur, Iceland

When I arrived at this location there was heavy rain and it didn't look very promising for taking photos. I fell asleep to the sound of rain hitting the roof of the car. Around 3:00 a.m. I woke up to see the storm was clearing and there was a fiery sunrise as the sun rose below the low cloud ceiling. I quickly grabbed my camera gear and ran down the trail to the beach. After setting up my tripod the beautiful light disappeared as the sun rose above the clouds. I was kicking myself for sleeping through a spectacular sunrise.
