More Early Mornings
Tara Walton/Staff Photographer
I'm not a morning person. Lucky for me, traveling three time zones west has helped ease the transition of waking up at the crack of dawn. Many people probably don't realize that being in a photo position for an event that begins in the early afternoon often involves an early start, a couple of trips on different shuttles, and a fair amount of caffeine. All of this is of course well worth it. The early morning trips (when not snoozing) have lent themselves to some magnificent sunrises and there is the benefit of course of having a front row ticket to watching the best athletes in the world compete at the highest level possible.
Here's is a bit of what I saw...
6:15am - made it to my shuttle with 15 mins to spare.
