Weekly Photo Challenge: Early bird…catching the worm

This week’s theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge, “Early Bird“, is right in my sweet spot.  I wake up early no matter what time I go to sleep and, being married to a night owl, that means I don’t always get as much sleep as I’d like.  But it does make for some glorious morning photos and time to be almost alone on the path in the park.  This morning there was some early fog and the sun was just up from the horizon, allowing me this glimpse of beauty.  If the early bird really does catch the worm, this is a worm I’ll catch as often as possible!

Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself.
~Henry David Thoreau, Walden

The sun just touched the morning;
The morning, happy thing,
Supposed that he had come to dwell,
And life would be all spring.
~Emily Dickinson

    Your photo makes a good case for getting out to photograph in the early morning golden hour. Beautiful!

    • I’m so happy you like it, Angeline. I was quite pleased when I saw how it turned out. If you’re not an early morning person, the trick is to get out early in the spring or later in the fall, when daylight doesn’t come so early! 🙂
