There's many reasons why photographers wake up at ungodly hours to photograph a scenic be it the light, the color, the absolute tranquility of being there alone with nobody else around and then there is the whole experience of it all; seeing something which nobody else does. In many ways I think I am addicted to it all but one the things is certainly the experience of it and being able to click the shutter. I'm definitely a morning shooter as compared to an evening light sort of photographer. The air is so much more pure then with the lack of pollution not to mention you generally have nobody else around that can cause issues when photographing a landscape. It's hard to describe but there is a certain sort of tinge of freshness in the air then, it's invigorating. So it was on this morning when I was photographing Lake Ladora at Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge in Denver, Colorado. very chilly out to say the least but arms with gloves and a huge mug of coffee, I was ok mostly. I stood here photographing this as Coyotes were singing and howling literally over my right shoulder incredibly loud and I pondered and thought "wow, I am lucky!" Sometimes, it really is all about the experience.
