D'oh!

On the second day of our recollection last week, the first prayer period was at 6:30 in the morning. So I finally woke up early enough to catch a sunrise. Only to discover that, from the highest point of the Loyola Retreat House (which was the second floor deck), the sunrise was behind the trees and over the next hill.

That could be a song: Over the hill, behind the trees, a sunrise beckons me...la di dah.

You did good! Every so often I get up early and am always surprised at what I see. It almost makes me want to get up early more often. The operative word in that sentence is "almost." :-)

thta's why i always get out of the house very early to catch the sunrise so that at least i get to find the best pov. but shooting it with a tree as silhouette aint really bad.
