Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Autumn Sunrise

When I woke this morning and looked out the window I knew right away I had to capture the moment. So, still in pajamas, I grabbed my camera and walked down to the beach to record the sun rising behind Rangitoto Island and the early morning crowd out getting their exercise.  A man passed nearby walking his Dog. “Good morning”, I said.  “Good morning”  he replied, no doubt wondering why I was still wearing my PJs on the beach.  It didn’t worry me.  I got my pictures and was feeling very happy.
