My submission is from this year's family vacation at the beach. It was stressful with infants and a toddler between a few branches of the family, but I was able to catch a couple sunrises and capture this moment.
I tried several different Spyderco models, starting with my burnt orange HAP40 Endura. This Endura was my first limited edition (sprint, in this case) Spyderco, the one that started it all. I, therefore, tried getting a sunrise shot with that to signify a profound change in my tastes; a "new day" as it were. This and other attempts didn't feel right in the context of the ocean and sand. The first sunrise ended with no calendar-worthy photos.
After some consideration, I had a plan for the next sunrise I could sneak out to. This Pacific Salt, the knife I specifically purchased for the beach and fishing, fit the sandy context far better, despite lacking the same "new day" type of significance.
This Pacific Salt is a SE version, and as such, it has reintroduced me to the benefits of serrations when properly employed. They aren't shown in the photo, so that connection can't be made visually, but I don't mind.
