Morning has broken

Last week, the world was bathed in light, with the sense of new beginnings and possibilities.

And I couldn’t help thinking of Cat Stevens singing:

Morning has broken like the first morning.

Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning.

The feather touch of frost, the misty dawn, those glorious colours found an echo, a song in my soaring spirit.

  1. My goodness, this is the most exquisite morning sky I have ever seen. Look at all those pastel shades of pink, blue, green and yellow that differ so much from the deep red and orange during sunsets. And the mist adds a sense of enchantment…
    This is a magical moment captured by a lens, if there ever was one. Stunning and breath taking indeed…

  2. OMG!! Would I love to see these blown up and mounted on a wall! Especially the second one! Did you throw a stone into the water?

    • Forgot to tell you: that the dog is swimming in the water, thus creating the ripples.

  8. Swimming might be too much for me in november but good that somebody likes it. Cat suits the mood even if cats don´t like the water.

    I am thinking that your photo should be blown up and pasted all over walls across the world. Peace, love, and happiness emanate from that shot.
