If I take the time to notice, I am constantly amazed at the beauty of the area I live in. I have been trying to do so. I've been eating breakfast outside everyday, I've been trying to notice the sunrise (since I have to be up anyway) I've been trying to look around at the flowers, trees, hills and sky as I am outside for a run. I love being able to see my house from the top of the street. I love our house, I love our area. I am grateful we found this spot. I hope we never have to leave.
This is a picture of a sunrise a couple of weeks ago. It makes me want to figure out how to photograph things like this better. Although the picture is pretty, it doesn't do the actual scene justice. The sun was BRIGHT red and the sky was so pretty and orangy-pink fading out to lavender and then light blue. I tried several adjustments to get it right... I'll just have to settle for this for now.
PS. I love the palm tree and bird silhouette
