First Light by catch---22 First Light by catch---22
Been looking back,
Down through the ages;
First I was an ancient,
Then I was an infant,
Now I am alive.

Been holdin' out,
Searchin' for something,
Something to carry
Me over the sunset,
To dawn's early lights......


my morning jacket


sunrise over the Ozark Mountains... the deep deep woods.

Viewing this image reminds me of small section of lyrics from a song I like. :sing:

 

there's a brighter day round the corner

there's a crown behind the hill

there's a city of light on that foggy mountain top

where the wind is never still

 

Beauty in the River by The Ozark Mountain Daredevils

The "Quilt" Album, 1973.

The different shades of blue that trace the different layers of the mountains, together with that mist and the soft orange light from the sun create something so beautiful and calming and wonderful I just want to get on a plane and travel in search of it. And those three rays of light projecting from the sun! Perfect as always.

When I see a shot like this I envy the person who gets to stand there and view it...to watch the movement of the clouds, and the colors of the sky as it changes from dawn to day, to breathe in the scent of the trees, and look out over ridge after ridge...Beautiful.
