This month's theme/challenge is 'First Light'

Here is what Wendy has posted on the subject on the website's main page:

Challenge yourself and awaken just before sunrise. Grab a cup of coffee, and find a window facing east. Leave your camera in the bag. Watch the sun rise and begin its soft kiss on your world. At first, the light is barely noticeable, and as it brightens shadows begin to give shape to the landscape until it blinds you like a spotlight. First light—its beauty is fleeting, and that’s what makes it so special. Welcome to your new assignment.

This challenge will focus on the quality of natural light—its character, subtleties, and beauty—and how it enhances your image. No artificial light is permitted. If you’re a heavy sleeper, don’t fret. Rules are for bending. First light is magical and worth a look, but take a few hours after to make your photographs. It’s your pick, but look for that sweet light within this window of time.

You can plan for sunrise by being in the right place at the right time. Scouting your location ahead of time can help a lot. Do it when sleep has been satisfied and you have fresh eyes! You don’t want to be wandering around in the dark. Find that special spot beforehand and return at sunrise. Here’s something fun you might want to try: Photograph your scene from the exact location at different times of the day and learn how light “paints” a different picture each time.
