This Man Spent 3 Years Photographing Something We Often Take For Granted

If you miss one sunrise, all you have to do is wait until the next one rolls around.

And for that reason, we all tend to take these daily spectacles for granted. They get lost behind blinds on busy mornings. They disappear from view behind sleepy eyelids every Sunday. Nature lets us in on a small miracle each morning, but we usually snooze our alarms and ignore that phenomenon completely.

Even if you’re someone who revels in everything that the twilight has to offer, it’s easy for the beauty of a rising sun to grow dim. If you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all, right? Well, not necessarily. French photographer Julien Grondin — better known online as Beboy Photography — set out on a three-year journey around the world to prove that nature’s beauty wakes anew every morning.
