The morning I took this picture, I woke up well before sunrise to make my way to the banks of Lago de Atitlan, a sparkling blue lake just north of Guatemala's capital, Guatemala City. I wanted to be there before the sun came over the ridge, golden and crisp. To my disappointment at the time, the overcast morning muted the sunrise, which could barely even be seen. I am struck now that it was hard for me to see the beauty that stood before me. I expected something different.
