After six wonderful visits (seriously) to this location the colorful sunrise I desired also decided to showed up. Taken at a beautiful little city park along the river. The park is sadly overlooked by locals as there is only a short boardwalk. Thankfully the boardwalk faces east across the White Oak River and is one of the few spots in the area that actually face east, and therefore the sunrise.
I'm blessed to be able to visit this general area ~6-8 times a year and know it well. Having that local knowledge allows my shooting locations to be flexible based on current conditions.
I'll visit the location again, but there isn't much chance of that wonderful dark cloud making a repeat appearance.
