Woke to the glow. Pre-sunrise sunshine reflecting off a thin cloud cover creating a cast of energy across the landscape. Orange, yellow, brown leaves cling to branches radiating their brightest light. Hillside of grasses not yet awake but there’s a warmth like the child still snuggled in its morning bed. The air is still and quiet as if all is aware of this coming glory, as if a miracle is about to happen. The animals, the dogs, the people all feel this sense of joy, warmth, stillness, love, gratitude while awaiting the glorious awakening and crest of the sun over the horizon.
Autumn light, its long shadows and low angle is the best. The light event has passed. The sun is obscured by the clouds, a slight breeze blows and its time to get on with our day.
