“Here Comes the Sun” conjures up dawn and sunrise, my favorite time to be out walking and taking photos, so thanks to Amy for the theme, although it did make it hard to choose. 🙂 So I have to interrupt the retrospective of my Wyoming vacation to go for the sunshine.

This shot was taken on my way down the mountain in Wyoming as I headed home in 2017, the day of the eclipse. As you can see, it began in a stunning way, really more beautiful than the eclipse itself.

At the Preserve here in Arizona…

Sunshine inside the house…

In the morning in Illinois…

As backlighting…

    Ah, brilliant! Love the first and the egret (?) especially!

  2. restlessjo says:

    Oh, that egret shot! So beautiful. And I can’t help singing along 🤗💗

  3. peggy says:

    Beautiful. Can’t pick out a favorite – I love them all.

  4. bushboy says:

    The first photo is a stunner janet 🙂

    • Many thanks, Brian. It’s was a moment when I had to find a place to pull over (and there are only a couple on the way down the quite narrow mountain road) and take a number of photos. The actual eclipse later in the day was much less awesome. 🙂

  5. Tina Schell says:

    It seems I’m the “odd one out” but my favorite is the backlight image Janet, it’s so perfectly captured! They’re all wonderful though. The first is glorious and the light on the egret is perfect. Great choices for the week.

  6. Amy says:

    The image of the sun is stunning, indeed. Beautiful egret. The light inside the house is like an abstract image. I love your backlit photos, especially the last one. Thank you, Janet!

  7. Tish Farrell says:

    What a very gorgeous, sun-riser gallery, Janet. All lovely in their own way, but the shot inside the house caught my eye because that’s what it felt like too.

    • That shot of the leaves was due to one of those moments when you see something and instantly have to run for your camera, whether phone or “real” camera or both. 🙂

  8. Oh, I love your Eclipse, and Egret images!!

  9. JohnRH says:

    Wow. LOVE that sun and sky in the opener.

  10. Cee Neuner says:

    Such wonderful photos Janet 😀 😀

  11. scr4pl80 says:

    What great shots! I love the first one best but they are all beautiful.

  12. Mitzi says:

    Great images…but that 1st shot! WOW

  13. Jodie says:

    Oh, Janet, that moon shot is incredible. That needs to be framed for sure.

  14. de Wets Wild says:

    The golden glow of the rising sun – best inspiration there could be to tackle the day ahead!

  15. Wind Kisses says:

    Beautiful photos. You have been on my mind, as you come and go, and I come and go. I know you are missing Wyoming. A beautiful send off.

    • Glad you liked these, Donna. I always miss Wyoming at least a little bit but I’m busy here and it’s almost grandson time so that will be great. Thought of you too.
