An early morning sunrise is filled with hope. The day has yet to begin, all kinds of options are open. What are you going to cook for breakfast, who are you going to call? You’re awake and the whole day is ahead of you.
Of course you could be warm, inside the house with a cup of coffee. Or still asleep. For some reason, I just can’t sleep in!
I was sitting at my computer and my husband came in and said that I might want to get my camera, it looked like it might be a nice sunrise. He’s always right!
This morning I put on my big wool coat that I bought at the Goodwill (a second hand store), my scarf, my hat, and my boots and walked outside with my camera, my tripod and my remote. The air was crisp. All around me I could hear the neighbors roosters crowing. The sky had a few clouds – it was a perfect morning. My husband, wearing a t-shirt outside in the cold, took this picture of me.
The clouds begin to light up…
The world becomes awake, as shadows disappear.
Birds come alive, soaring in the sky.
It’s a new day. It’s a new year. Happy 2012!
