I love leaving for a trip very early in the morning, when it’s cool, quiet, no longer quite dark, and most people are (hopefully) still in bed.

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
~Marcel Proust
  1. […] via The morning drive — This, that and the other thing […]

  2. The perfect time of day to be on the roads, as the world around you is slowly waking up. Have fun

  3. I like it to drive into a sun rise… it is like a good sign that this brandnew day brings only good things to me :O)

  4. Sue says:

    Yep, I love the early morning light…but don’t get to see it that often!

  5. Ruth says:

    Beautiful images, and the Proust quote is one of my all-time favourites 🙂

  6. Joanne Sisco says:

    I really like that first quote. It is so appropriate for that early morning feeling 🙂

    • Finding good quotes is so easy with internet, Joanne, one of the good things about it. 🙂 That early morning feeling is such a lovely one, all the better when I don’t have to work later.


  7. Tish Farrell says:

    Lovely shots, and I especially like the Proust quote – rather than seeking out new places – looking at what we know with fresh eyes.

  8. Allan G. Smorra says:

    There’s nothing quite like a beautiful sunrise followed by a tasty breakfast. That first photo is a beauty, Janet. The soft muted colors and the touch of ground fog brings a hush to my morning, today.

  9. Oh, how fortunate to see such grandeur. I wish that I could prod myself to see more sunrises. Especially enjoyed that first capture. Love the Proust quote.

  10. Norm 2.0 says:

    My favourite time of day – it always feels like I have the entire world to myself 🙂

    • I like to be walking in the park at sunrise, but driving is a good time, too…as long as it’s on a trip and not to work. 🙂 In the Chicago area, it’s difficult to find a time when you feel that you have the road to yourself, though!!


  11. Your word descriptions and pictures had me there recalling for myself the pleasures of early journeys. Thanks for sharing.

  12. What a gorgeous morning you had to the be on the road! I love both quotes.

  13. Dan Antion says:

    It’s a great time to be on the road. I’ve left on trips at that time and I’ve been on some overnight road trips where we get tp see the sun as it starts to rise. That always gives a new burst of energy.

  14. I love early morning walks and drives, too. Always something beautiful to see as soon as it’s light enough! Loved the quotes you chose.

  15. bythebriny says:

    Beautiful colours in the sky. Love that wide-open landscape.

    • The prairie landscape is beautiful and relatively flat, allowing all that openness. The colors were wonderful and the sun was a enormous ball of orange when it rose. Hard to capture with the iPhone, though.

    I love misty landscapes!

  17. de Wets Wild says:

    Being out in the early morning is also the best tip for finding great wildlife action in South Africa’s wild places, and therefore I concur wholeheartedly with your sentiments, Janet!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
