Serenity Sunday: Eumundi Sunrise

It’s a beautiful morning and the forecasters are again predicting an unseasonably warm day, approaching the 60s (Fahrenheit)—a very pleasant relief from the single-digit chill of the past few days, yet still of concern because it’s not normal for this time of year.  It’s windy but sunny at the moment, and following yesterday’s premier of my new Silly Saturday series, I had the idea this morning to initiate another, rather diametrically opposed, which I am calling Serenity Sunday.  For the first edition, I’d like to offer a shot that I made a couple of years ago while in Queensland, Australia.  We’d arisen well before sunrise for a long day of driving and dawn’s early light found us near the town of Eumundi, where we passed by a small body of water that was actually rather nondescript during normal daylight, but the soft glow of the rising sun illuminated the lovely clouds for me, and I just had to stop for a few minutes for a closer look.

    Great light can make the ordinary extraordinary. This image is an extremely apt example of that precept. Well done.

      Thank you, Kerry! I found myself glowing inside after having seen and taken the time to stop and savor the moment (and capture the vision). It was a very long drive, but I think this was the best shot of the day. By the way, I’ve added a link to your site in my new “Blogs I Like” widget–ok?
