94 California Sunrises and Sunsets from 2014 (And the First 3 of 2015...)

Editor’s Note: This is Cross-posted from the PJ Tatler, where it was first published on January 1 as “New Year’s Resolution: Try to Shoot the Sunrise & Sunset as Much as Possible” along with encouragement for others to consider the sunrise and sunset as something worth slowing down to mark your day with in the morning and evening. Here’s all the sunrise/sunset photos, hyperlapses, and videos I shot last year.

Best wishes to everyone this year! If you’re looking for something to try and change then I very strongly encourage an early-riser routine. Getting to see the sunrise every morning is a wonderful gift. Don’t miss it!
