After a week of rain, we are having a gorgeous fall day.
Just the thing for the 1 Day 1 World Project’s 7:00 – 8:00 am hour. I’ve missed a few weeks because there is not a lot to photograph around here in the dark hours. You can only take so many pictures of a cup of coffee and and a Kindle, which are my usual early morning companions.
But this morning the weather cooperated. Then a little PhotoShop increase of contrast and saturation helped capture the feeling of a welcome sunrise.
We are so thankful for the rain also – had about 7-8″ overall! We welcome fall with open arms and with the hope of cooler temperatures. What a gorgeous sunrise; that’s more than worth the wait!
Ya, after 2011 I don’t think I’ll ever complain about rain again! I really enjoyed a week of staying inside. But it wasn’t very photo-worthy! 🙂
I love the sun rays!
I was glad to capture them!
What a beautiful photo!
Thank you! I went out for two mornings, and shot for about an hour and a half each time. I got some good pictures but nothing that really spoke to me until this one!
I really wanted to just sit inside with my coffee, but I thought, “No, I have to get out there and do something for Lisa!” 🙂
Oh wow, I hope it was worth it! I don’t want to become a bad word around your house but I really do love this photo. 🙂
The whole reason I wanted to be part of your project was to make myself do things a little out of the ordinary, think about things in a new way – so yes, it was worth it! I have had lots of fun with this project.
Also, I have discovered that saying, “It’s part of a blog challenge,” makes people readily accept whatever unusual thing I am doing!

That photo was worth the time and energy spent–it is simply stunning!
Thank you. We are surrounded by trees here, but when I try to photograph them they look like scraggly weeds instead of the big full trees I see, so I have pretty much given up on that. But this time it seemed like the shot captured them better.
Beautiful. I can almost smell the earth.
Lovely light and a beautiful reflection captured.
