Morning Gold


                                                                                                                              Available for purchase here

This morning I took a rare opportunity to go beyond my own backyard during the very early morning.

The jacarandas are slowly turning golden in preparation for a spring of purple blossoms. The misty fog was gently lifting from the river.

While capturing the fog I noticed a spot of bright yellow.

A lone winter sunflower stood "tall" along the river's grassy verge.


                                                                                                                              Available for purchase here

The morning's golden hour gave way to a beautiful day which later overflowed with more challenges and blessings than anticipated. We have to take those golden opportunities whenever we can for one never knows what's ahead.

Słonecznik, tak jak i Ty podziwiał unoszącą się mgłę nad rzeką i wyłaniające się widoki. Pozdrawiam.
Sunflower, as well as you admire the mist hovering over the river and the emerging views. Yours.

Beautiful photos at such a wonderful time of the day. Your last comment is so very true. Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today. None of us know what's around the next corner.

Lovely words and photos. I love the early morning fog. Your images are lovely. Thanks for sharing, have a great day.

Catherine said...

I do wish that I got up early to see the beauty that comes with the early morning light. I adore all of your photos but especially love the last of that lone sunflower inviting spring. x

Again, I ask the question "Are you kidding me?" I hope you put each and everyone of these photos on your purchase site. In this instance, it's not a case of favourites because even the best judge couldn't choose from these, but your fifth, just touches me that slight bit more.

Molly said...

These really are very beautiful. I can't stop looking.

Thanks so much, also, for your comments on my quilting blog! It's something that I really enjoy!

Gillian Olson said...

Love the misty morning shots, they have a magical quality to them. That lone sunflower standing tall and proud is interesting, I didn't realize they grew in the winter where you are (here it is strictly a summer plant).

Elisabeth said...

Peace and serenity...birds chirping (well, in the background music) but I still imagine that they do out there in the beautiful lush, and plush greenery.
Photos are gorgeous. I could just look at these scenery for hrs and listen to the lovely peaceful music!

trishie said...

Dreamy and romantic pics...Love that lone sunflower

Doug Hickok said...

These are fantastic images... the mist and morning light are stunningly beautiful in this setting. Glad you went out early and beyond your normal bounds. It is a good lesson :^)
