Yesterday morning, my twin sister, Chrissie and I threw on heavy coats and snuck out of the house before the sun was up. I live about a mile from Laguna Lake and every time I drive by I think I should go over and snap some pics at sunrise. And we finally did it!

It was cold and lovely and best of all, I got a few minutes alone with my sister.

I wanted to capture the texture of the trees and water against the pink of the fading twilight as the golden sun made it’s way into the sky. This year I want to keep practicing photography and learn more about my camera. I’d also love to take a lightroom class. I use lightroom for editing, but I’m barely scratching the surface of what it can do!

What’s one thing you’d like to practice or learn this year?
