Yesterday morning I was out early just as the sun was coming up. Needed to feed animals and do some trimming around the yard, but couldn’t resist stopping for some pictures first.
I couldn’t quite capture the sunrise in all it’s glory. It’s amazing how quickly a scene will change in the few minute it took me to walk back to the house and get my camera. But I did manage to catch some of the morning fog and a bit of the orange in the sky.
Then I noticed that dew was clinging to the ends of the pine needles. When I saw it, I couldn’t help but think of the descriptions I’ve read in books of early mornings with dew glistening like jewels. Next time I read a description like that, this is the image that will come to mind.
And of course, while I had my camera out, I had to take a picture of some of the animals. Poppy couldn’t understand why I had stopped throwing her ball, but was patiently waiting for me to resume her favorite pastime.
Orca was waiting in the grass for the gopher. He had a long wait.
