Ok, technically I was not day tripping just to watch the sunrise. In fact, to be honest, I never watch it rise. I prefer for the sun to watch me rise instead. The reality of it is that I was off on a day trip which involved my being on the road  at such an hour as would allow for me to witness this event. Sunsets? Sign me up! I’m all about those.

I’m also all about having unique experiences which inexplicably make life richer. I’m all about seeking out the beauty in nature and finding it. I might not have chosen to watch the sunrise, but I’m glad that I was on some back roads when it did so that I could pull over and capture a few shots for it was indeed quite glorious!

What is the good of your stars and trees, your sunrise and the wind, if they do not enter into our daily lives? ~ E. M. Forster

I can’t help flying up on the wings of anticipation. It’s as glorious as soaring through a sunset… almost pays for the thud. ~ Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

The poetry of the earth is never dead. ~ John Keats
