When you see a photograph of a sunrise over water, it's just an image. When you witness a sunrise over the sea, it's a passionate event. All your senses are energized ... the pre-dawn glow, the sounds of shrieking gulls, the relentless lapping of waves, the potpourri of smells from lifeforms along the beach, the taste of the salty spray as it moistens your lips, the breeze against your cheek. Then as the horizon glows ever more intensely, you strain not to blink so as not to miss the very first glimpse of fire as it peeks over the edge. And as it gracefully breaks over the horizon you gasp in amazement that another day has begun with such profound reverence.
