Two Horses, Two Riders

Summer 2014 was the Summer of Sunrises for me.  I had always preferred sunsets, simply because they occur at an hour when I'm usually awake.  I never realized how superior sunrise actually is until this summer.  That's not to say that I never saw a sunrise before this summer, I just never really took it in.
