|*On a hill north of San Carlos Bay,
in Sonora, Mexico, we were up bright and early to photograph this lovely sunrise. The
array of birds are Pelicans, probably following a near-surface school of
small fish or squid.
As you travel down south along the Mexican coast from Guaymas through Navajoa and toward the Tropic of Cancer, keep an eye out for an enrichment of early morning or late evening light. If you find a spot giving you a southern or southeastern view, it makes early rising a worthwhile endeavor.
It is of interest that the vicinity of the Tropic of Cancer (23.5 degrees north of the equator) has long been famed for sunrises and sunsets. It represents the extreme for northernmost motion of the sun in summer, just as the Tropic of Capricorn represents the southernmost extreme in winter.
