Driving into work this morning, I saw a familiar light. I looked over my shoulder and saw something that made me pull over. I noticed a horizontal line with dark blobs sitting atop like globs of paint. Thank you, again, Mother Nature!
Rough day. I’m under the weather and first up today was a rough test that shouldn’t have been that rough.
But before I stepped out to face the day, I saw a unique glow outside my window–THAT glow. The glow that appears sometimes at sunrise or sunset–the glow with which mother nature announces “PAY ATTENTION–I have something to show you!” I do not recall confirming the glow, but I soon had my D300 in-hand and stepped out to capture this sunrise.
After the long day, I returned to the apartment and saw the camera on my desk–a reminder to myself to check the photos. I’m glad I left the camera where I did. With everything that happened today, I had forgotten about the sunrise.
Looking at it again, I see how amazing the world is–if we take the time to pay attention.
I stepped outside to check the weather before a run this morning–and that’s when my primal instinct kicked in. Stretched from a folded patio umbrella to the patio table was this little critter. He must have worked quite a while on this before the sunrise showed his work in its full glory. After the run, I stopped by again to get more (and better) photos. But he–and almost all evidence of his work–were gone.
