One of the many things I love about this time of year are the sunrises. This morning I was writing my morning pages and I peeked out my back deck and caught a glimpse of deep pink.
|Heading out to chase the sunrise.|
I got so excited and I KNEW I had to see this sunrise! I realized as I threw my sweater and boots on and grabbed my keys that I had not sought out a prime vantage point for watching the sunrise since we moved this summer. What? How can this be? We are lucky enough to live in a tree filled area with hills so sometimes the sunrise/sunset can be elusive.
|Pulled over to catch the colors|
I called my good friend Shelly who's an award winning photographer and lives close to see if she had any special spots :) Great thing she's also an early bird!
|At the stop light|
Shelly did not have any tried and true places but recommended due to time I head over towards the local park to at least cut out the "industrial" background.
|Sunrise at Bunton Road Park|
Election signs & vote here signs guided my way into the park where I caught the last of the sunrise colors even though I couldn't actually find a spot high enough or clear enough to catch the actually breaking of the sun.
It was a beautiful start to this Tuesday where voting is one of the first things on my to-do list this morning. However, I knew I better go home first and put on some undergarments I neglected in my rush out the door to catch the Sunrise!! :)
Have you ever felt the pull of nature so strong you just had to respond? I'd love to hear your stories.
Wrapping you around with infinite love and beauty,
p.s. After my invigorating early morning adventure I sat down for Day 2 of the Meditation Experience - Loving starting my day this way!
