Photo of the Week: The Most Beautiful Sunrise I Had Ever Seen

Photo 1

These two photos (I couldn't decide which one!) were taken [on a late September] morning on the Wye River in Grasonville, Md. My family has a house there and we spend every weekend that we can waterskiing, wake boarding, sailing, swimming, fishing, and just relaxing outside.

On this particular morning, I found myself up at the crack of dawn and standing outside with my dad, mom, and boyfriend. It was honestly the most beautiful sunrise I had ever seen. The water was completely still, with no tidal movements nor a whisper of wind, and a fine mist was pouring off the land and onto the glassy, mirrored surface of the river. In an age of filtered and edited photos, I can absolutely say that this is au naturel.
