Originally I had not planned to do this hike but as I was leaving the hostel I made the sudden decision to climb this mountain in the dark! This trail is much easier to hike than Grotto Mountain but there was more elevation gain and a real chance of catching an epic sunrise.
About an hour into the hike I stopped to get to get my first pictures of the day and discovered that I had forgotten to bring an SD card for my Nikon, In most cases this wouldn’t be a big issue because I still have one functional camera, the problem comes in when I’m trying to shoot this video and I constantly have to move the single card between my cameras.
Even with the inconveniences of the single card this turned out to be an amazing sunrise and over a very successful sunrise hike.
Just in case you were wondering, yes, the colors were enhanced. I generally like to keep the image looking as real to the scene as possible but in this case I wanted to recreate the scene the way it had looked about 30 minutes before.

Much like the previous day, the third sister just didn’t want to come out to the show! The nice part was that the clouds and warm sunlight worked together to frame the first sister perfectly.

The heavy clouds seamed to be getting stuck right on the tops of the peaks making it look like they where starting to float away. I used black and white on this shot to really bring attention to how big the clouds where.
