The early bird catches the worm ... who doesn't know the saying?
Well, I don't like worms for breakfast, neither do I like to stand up early. Latter is not a good precondition for photographers in most cases - the light as you know is most spectacular in morning or evening hours in most cases ...
And there is one more thing to consider: When it comes to human entities such as cities, especially those with a high appeal for photographers AND tourists, the cityscapes tend to burst with human beings during daytime. Something I try to avoid, not only because of extending privacy regulations.
Talking about this image, I was up early, very early considering we just had left about 600km behind as during night to reach our target Lazise at Lake Garda in Italy.
I was tired in fact, but the wonderful harbor, streets and scapes in the silent, but slowly awakening little village showed it's full beauty in the two hours I discovered it - almost alone.
Compared to the same location a few hours later, I really was happy for not having taken a nap in the car as my family did and strike out on my own with the camera instead ...
Don't be too tired for photography and be the early bird,
