I love a good sunrise or sunset. Lately we have done a few overnights to get ourselves ready for a big hike we are planning for in June/July this year. To ensure serenity on the top of popular peaks, we have been hiking a few of them at dawn (and indark) to enjoy the sunrise (and the lack of people). As we walked up Mount Feathertop the fog started rolling in. We were worried we wouldn't get much of a view, but the combination of the fog with the sunrise left us with some great photos and a completely different sunrise experience.

The Horn at Mt Buffalo we took in a beautiful sunset and then returned early for a pale sunrise (unfortunately the iPhone battery died overnight).

Does anyone else have a passion for sunrise or sunsets when hiking?

These were all taken on the SCT, the top two off of PB and the bottom from the western side of Prion Beach.

They're actually a lot wider, they have been cut off by the website. Here are the full ones:
