I decided to set my alarm for 3:30 on Saturday and get out to old town for some photos.  Yes, this makes no sense- why get up that early when I can sleep in?  There is a good reason- the hour before and after dawn are the photographer's best light.  Predawn is the softbox of the sky, and when the sun appears it is warm and golden.  The evening has a similar lighting effect.,  But when doing cityscapes there are hardly any cars or people out in the morning (back to the sleeping in thing) as opposed to the evening, when everyone wants to flock to the old town area for the shopping, dining. . and the great views, a few of which I have captured here!
