According to a press release, Jenkins captured the dynamic, colorful sunrises presented in “My Lord, What a Morning” along the coastline and waterways of New Hanover County.

“The exhibit, which runs until Dec. 11, serves as the introduction to the Upperman Center’s theme for the year, ‘A People by the Sea.’” 

“Jenkins, a passionate amateur photographer, hopes the exhibit encourages viewers to see each day through a lens of opportunity.

“Sunrises mark the beginning of a new day, and they symbolize the gift of new possibilities,” she said in the release. “Yesterday may not have gone as you planned, but now you have a whole new day to try again.”
