I used to live in an apartment in Chicago facing east onto Lake Michigan. This gave a great opportunity to photograph sunrises over the lake, which itself has many moods. My understanding of sunrises has also changed over the years. When I began taking these pictures, the feeling was that it was the announcement of a new day. Later I came to appreciate the sense of power and energy that the sun represents. Also included are pictures of the interaction of sunlight and clouds over the lake. At the bottom are sunrises in San Diego.
