The thing I love about the dark is that it really makes you appreciate the light.
Nearly every morning, I head to the front door shortly after I get ready to see the sunrise.
Some days, it's rainy and the show is dismal.
Other days, like this morning and also earlier this week, I get this brief blast of color.
While there's no denying the vibrant, beautiful colors in this photo, I've learned to look at the bigger picture the sunrise brings.
There's something about the shadowy trees that intrigues me. In the morning, they frame the cemetery flag in the distance, seemingly ready to engulf it at any moment. During the day, however, the trees seem to let up on the lonely flag, protecting it from harm.
One thing about the sunrise, you never know where it is going to take you. Sometimes the show is quick and you don't get an opportunity to fully enjoy it. Other days, the sunrise enters in a subtle fashion and then slowly morphs into something spectacular like the photo above.
Life's a little like that.
Have a great week!
