OK, I do not consider myself a landscape photographer. It takes far more preparation, and a tripod ;). Yet, when I am in a new place, like when I go for a scientific meeting, I see advantage of getting up early and exploring the area. Which is not easy, when I participate in late evening socials, like was a day before I took those pictures. I got up thinking to be there right at sunset, and miscalculated the duration of the walk just a bit. Sufficient to get good sunrise light, though.
