I sweated bullets about this. I've tried a number of times in the past to photograph (and time lapse) sunrise from this location near Index, Washington but I never experienced a great sunrise. I was 11 miles and 15 minutes away and I could already see the horizon "warming" up. I was sure that I had left too late to take advantage of this. As you can see, everything worked out great (although it was very windy).
