Friday My Town Shoot Out ~ Sunrise/Sunsets
This weeks shoot out theme was chosen by Sherri. Sunrise/Sunsets are the target.
All week I have been trying to catch the sun going down, but missed it every time.
Still feeling disappointed that I had nothing,
I decided to chase a sunrise this morning.
I had high hopes and visions of parking on a hill overlooking the desert
and capturing the most beautiful sunrise ever.
Well, it didn't quite happen like that and the wait was way too long.
I got fidgety in my parking spot, which by the way was kind of in the middle of nowehere.
I snapped a picture while it was still dark, but there was a little pink in the sky.

Then I got creeped out because after I snapped my photo
I saw movement in the distant to my right.
There was another car parked over there and I could vaguely make out a man
moving some white buckets.
My imagination went into overdrive and I was thinking dumping ground for bodies.
I started the car and got the hell out of there.
I drove to another spot and parked just off the freeway which was a little closer to home.
I felt a little safer.
Wouldn't you know though, that right where the sun was rising
there was a big piece of construction right in the way.
Well, it's Las Vegas afterall and if truth be told
I think the desert is ugly, even the supposedly pretty parts.
But I do my best to portray it in a better light.
Without further ado, here is my sunrise from this morning.

Yes, there's a lot of road in the photo.
I didn't know where else to go.
Oh, and just when I was getting comfortable shooting at the sun
my battery died, so that's all folks.
