A new day

The faint light of dawn was on the horizon.  I was ready to go on this chilly new day.  Everything around me was asleep waiting to emerge from Morpheus’s arms with the first rays of the rising sun.

The first rays

A horse was watching me.  He came to greet me and slowly made his way to the meadow.

The first rays of the sun, the mist rising from the river, the flowering meadow, the colours of the sunrise, the companionship of the horse…   It was a peaceful morning.

It was the first time I would get up so early in the middle of the night, 3 am, to get ready to photograph the sunrise.  It was an unforgettable and wonderful morning and I plan to return soon to another place I would love to photograph in the early hours.

I hope you are all having a wonderful and peaceful Summer.  And to those in the southern hemisphere a wonderful and peaceful Winter.

    Bonjour Jocelyne! Tes photos me donnent le goût de m’évader à la campagne, savourer les prairies et la douce lumière du matin. La première photo est sublime, cette brume légère qui se lève et ce soleil qui irradie de tous ses rayons. Une vraie carte postale!

    J’espère que tu passes un bel été.
    Anne xx
