Following the sunrise over Lagoa Araruama in Sao Pedro da Aldeia, RJ, Brazil

When is the last time you watched the sunrise?  Even on vacation, we don’t do it because we want to sleep-in to escape our work life.

 Just taking even one day on your vacation to enjoy a sunrise will greatly increase the enjoyment of your hard earned vacations.

 I was recently in Sao Pedro da Aldeia, RJ, Brazil staying at my friend Ricardo’s place. It has an exceptional view out the front window overlooking Lagoa Araruama to the east.  Ricardo told me that one most pleasant things about his new home were the sunrises.

 So one morning I got up at 5:45 AM (really, I am not joking), and took some photos of the beautiful sunrise over Lagoa Araruama.  On this morning, there were a few low lying clouds.  These clouds only made the sunrise better.

 I made my day happen last week following this sunrise, and IT WAS NOT A DREAM!  I hope you enjoy following the complete sunrise shown in my photographs below.
