I got to my chosen location in Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve, Florida (which is close to Everglades National Park and Big Cypress National Preserve) a little bit later than anticipated. The sun had already risen, and the light wasn't that great, so I feared that I missed the golden light of sunrise. But as time went on, the light was actually getting better and better. There was a bank of clouds near the horizon that I couldn't see in the darkness of twilight. It wasn't until the sun rose above those clouds, about a half hour after the actual sunrise, that I got that beautiful light and glistening dew I'd hoped for.
