Brrrr....still in a cold snap...but was happy to see a little colour begin over the eastern ridge this morning. It's wonderful to have the treeline as a measuring stick for the wobble of our world. By the Spring Equinox I will be able to show you our movement. My goal is take pictures of different dawns for a year, which began on the Winter Solstice in 2008. Funny how we often don't notice the natural rhythm around us all the time.
By the time we reach the Equinox, less than two weeks away, I think I may have to run down to A Street to get the shots! Oh, but the colours are definitely worth the early morning outing. Most of the year, I'm lucky to be able to sip my tea in comfort and take the pictures from the back deck...my balcony box-seat to Mother Nature's glorious show.
The early coral and pink give way, quickly, to the gold of molten light. As tea warms my insides, the day begins to warm the inside of our Aerie. Anna sleeps and Rani the pup joins me for a bit of breakfast and quick outside loo-run. Her nan needs to think about long-johns for the morning walk, methinks!
This cloud looked like a magical genie, reaching to pull the golden orb over the ridge. The beams begin to reach for the water in Joe's Bay and my morning calling to the Seven Directions weaves between.
There's lots of work to do today...but there's always time for greeting and gratitude in my world. The rest of the day flows from there. Blessings upon your day, dear readers.
