First sunrise on the playa after one of the best nights of our lives. As it rose we found this amazing sculpture. The back of her head is an open cage saying rise! This was one of far too many moments to remember. Overwhelmed by creativity, nature and the beauty of sharing it with my best friend. That was an amazing day, It was my birthday and was I blessed. Here's to yours today and many more to come @kenamurph ❤️ #burningman2017#playasunrise#dance
My first sunrise over the playa 👣✨🚀 hands down the most beautiful sunrise I've ever seen. There is nothing like making it through the nights magnificent and overwhelming city of lights 🌃to feeling the desert slowly warm up as the sun begins her ritual dance in the morning sky 🌅 surrounded by your tribe of creepy crawly creatures that you stomped the night away with. 🔥❤️

Just when we think we figured things out, the universe throws us a curveball. So, we have to improvise. We find happiness in unexpected places. We find ourselves back to the things that matter the most, the universe is funny that way. Sometimes it just has a way of making sure we wind up exactly where we belong ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
The only sunrise I made it to😌. I was having #homesick the day before. I stayed in the camp all day, didn't go anywhere, and went to bed really early. I decided I will get up early and catch the #sunrise because Sanjay said I should not miss one of the most important things in the #burningman .
So I got up at 5am-ish, put on my onezie to stay warm, got on the tower.
As I was sitting there and waiting, @geoguide came back to the camp. He climbed up and we waited for the sunrise together.
Sanjay was right. So was everyone else. #Playasunrise was amazing! #Playa was quiet. No loud music. No LED light. It was like everything is quiet down for the sunrise. Once the sun is up again, everything turn up again.
Stay tuned for RTF's recap video of the 5 year anniversary of @mirusgallery featuring @burningman inspired ART🔥 Painting done by the #furtherrrcollective featuring @damonsoule @mars_1_ @oliver_vernon @davidchoonglee and @nomeedonna
The Bridge And The Cage at Sunrise. Long time burner and artist Valerie Mallory and her top crew member Mikell Haynes have been creating and installing art on the playa for a number of years. I've had the pleasure to see and photograph both Woman Tree and Soul Refuge. Both installations with her figures cast by real people, beautiful and hunting. I share my photos with the artist and she liked them. Last year I saw pictures on Facebook of her Muses of Da Vinci piece, it was lovely as ever. I informed Valerie that I didn't get the opportunity to see it and photograph it in person. She was crushed as she hoped I would share photographs of my take on her hard work with her. This year her piece was placed on the open playa right next to my street. It was called Bridge And Cage. I got to see them installing it in the hot sun. I never met Valerie and her crew so I thought I'd introduce myself. I checked a couple times to see how the installation was progressing and promised I would shoot it. So here is one shot. Thanks for doing what you do and bringing your art to the desert! .
