Photo Reflection of the Day #66: Sunrise at UMASS Boston

What Is It

Sunrise from in front of the Campus Center at UMASS Boston.

Why It's Today's Pick

As people know, I can be notoriously early, especially when it entails traveling to places.  My philosophy is that if I get there early, then I don't have to deal with traffic nearly as much and I can always find things to entertain myself.  On regular occasion, it provides such an opportunity as to watch the sunrise in all it's glory.   The morning wasn't cold by usual standards of late (in the mid-20s and slightly windy); it was cold for me for I didn't bring my hat (for my bald head) and gloves.  So when I wandered outside about 15 minutes prior to sunrise (should tell you how early I got to the campus for an event that started at 9am), I was definitely feeling the burn of the ice.  However, I stuck through until the sun was firmly above the horizon, snapping photos and video to capture it.  I found this to be the most striking photo of the lot, with the sun just got largely over but not above the horizon and the great range of colors available.
