Superb sunrise

The morning air was crisp and cool.  It was the coldest morn yet this fall.  The frost was heavy and covered the ground like big chunks of glitter.  The sun welcomed with a warm glow that wrapped me from head to toe like Mawmaw’s old cotton quilt.
The contrast between the cool of winter’s approach and the warmth of the forgotten summer sun could only mean that autumn is still here, although not for long.  Soon the sun will only last a few rays a day and the night will take it’s long winter hold. It’s then that I will long for the joy of today.

  2. Wow. Breath taking. My favorite is a tie between the 3rd and the last one. SO jealous I don’t live where you do. Every morning would be a joy to wake up and have that to greet me. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Just wanted to say I love your posts. I am from Ohio and living in Atlanta and miss the distinct and beautiful seasons. Your posts always remind me of the every day beauty of home.

  4. Beautiful photos as always. My favorite is the fourth one – it has a nice subtle, ghostly look to it. The hot air balloon photos are gorgeous as well.

    Beautiful pics by a man on a mission to perhaps find himself in life and inspire others by sharing part of his journey…My own refections is that he is going places far beyond he himself knows!! and he will have much to offer to society at large…best of luck…

  6. I love these pics! The “Happy balloon” made me feel happy even before I noticed the title. I feel inspired to paint one of these. Thanks for taking the time to post your photos.

  7. Good morning world! It seems this morning will be cloudy, but the sun says hello to you all. An air balloon will be seen floating in the air. If you are lucky enough you might catch it! But remember! The main attraction this morning is the golden sun!
    That is all from me, nothing-much-to-do news. Good moring and have a nice day!
