The esplanade near the Jade condo building in Miami provides great views of Biscayne Bay around dawn. This particular morning was cloudy on the verge of rain. The sun coming up over Virginia Key was unusually red, more like an August sunset than a December sunrise. I went into photo-making overdrive. There was another guy there taking pictures with a Rollei TLR. I asked him what film he was using and he said: Velvia.
