Palms and orange trees silhouetted against the rising sun in Marbella, Spain.
For the really adventurous who don't mind missing an opportunity to sleep in, there is always the option of getting up early and scurrying down to the beach to watch the sun rise. On the two mornings I headed down to the beach, there were only a few people to be found. Some, such as myself, were photographing the sunrise in stages, while others took an early morning walk on the beach. A couple of adventurous people took a 6 a.m. dip in the Atlantic.
