Early One Morning on the Way to...

Sunrise - 5/30/2009

Early last Saturday morning, I was on the way to W. G. Jones State Forest to look for woodpeckers, when I just had to stop on the side of the road for a bit. The morning's first light was just peeking over the horizon, painting the Texas sky with beautiful colors before waking the surrounding trees and farmland with its gentle touch. I sat there on the shoulder of the country road and ate my breakfast, soaking in the splendor of this morning light show in the quiet solitude of the moment.

Thanks for the visits and the generous compliments, gang! I don't often get to experience a nice sunrise this time of year (too busy getting kids up and ready for school and/or summer camp), so it was a nice morning of "me" time to sit and watch this gorgeous Texas sky.
