I’m a morning person so being up early isn’t a problem and I do love to see the sunrise. Here’s just one that I’ve seen at the Preserve.

Morning is my favorite time of day to be out and about, so many of my walks include a sunrise. I love the feeling of anticipation, of the new days, of possibilities.

Sunrise looks spectacular in the nature; sunrise looks spectacular in the photos; sunrise looks spectacular in our dreams; sunrise looks spectacular in the paintings, because it really is spectacular!

Leaving our cabin in Wyoming in 2017, I had to pause on my way down the mountin to catch a spectacular sunrise the morning of the eclipse. At the time of the actual eclipse, I was in the Badlands.

Sometimes sunrise doesn’t look the way we usually visualize it.

At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear.”

Sometimes morning is full of promise, leading you into the day.

At sunrise, the blue sky paints herself with gold colors and joyfully dances to the music of a morning breeze.

If you want to be reminded of the love of the Lord, just watch the sunrise.

Where we live now in the desert, sunrise is generally sudden. The sun isn’t there…and then it is. There isn’t much to block its rising.

Morning at the Preserve…three views

Usually there aren’t any clouds in the sky in Arizona but when there are, they not only provide a bit of shade but the opportunity for a spectacular sunrise (or sunset if you’re at the other end of the day.) A few days ago at the Preserve, this one stunned me, the perfect way to start a day, so I share it with you.

Morning is my favorite time of day, so I have lots of morning photos. As you can tell, these aren’t from Arizona, but early morning photos from “my” park back in Illinois. Enjoy and be well!

The sun’s up earlier these days and I got going a bit later so the sun was hitting the tops of the trees along the river when I arrived at the snow-covered park. It wasn’t a lot of snow, but enough to look pretty and cover the bumpy ice still on parts of the path. It was nice not to crunch at every step!

Turn around. There’s the sun just over the horizon.

Hurrah! I’ve made it to Philadelphia and back home, dropping of an entire van-load of things for our younger daughter, her last things from our house. One van-load less to move. Now back to the basement: sorting, packing, divesting of “stuff”, etc. Meanwhile, it’s Wednesday. Wake up and enjoy the day!

At this time of year, it’s not difficult to get to the park before sunrise. It’s my favorite time, a time when animals are often still out and when the park is usually rather empty (unless it’s the weekend.) In the last week or so, there’ve been some rather good sunrises, the sun first a small red-orange fingernail on the horizon, gradually growing larger until it emerges as a giant red ball.
