What’s not to love about a sunrise?

You know how much I love taking photos of sunsets and sunrises. (Capt G believes I may be a tad obsessed… he may have a point…) And many of you are kind enough to say I should do a coffee table book – which I may do for Christmas giveaways – but I thought I’d Continue reading
