you capture – something you’ve never captured before

After the Burn Part II of IV

This week’s You Capture challenge delights me because it turns out to be a challenge I met without even knowing what it was. Photograph something you’ve never photographed before. Going to Burning Man already makes that easy. Having never even taken a camera there before means I didn’t even have to narrow my options. And then, of the photos I had taken, I chose sunrise. I chose sunrise because I’m normally never up anywhere near in time to be aware of the existence of sunrise.

But most importantly, sunrise on the playa is my favorite of all places and times.
