Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Tree Branch Tips Off the Sun~












Be sure to check out more 'Skywatch Friday' posts from around the world at: http://skyley.blogspot.com/
Living in a valley, I seldom view a good sunrise, or sunset and have to make my way elsewhere.  One special place that I return to often, is at this tree line where one dead tree branch always seems to be reaching for the sun when it first begins to appear.  This morning I was able to catch the sun rising from imagined fingertips of the dead tree branch.  I loved how the sun seemed to warm the morning sky with hues that became richer as it rose a little higher~

  9. The washed out effect of the sky around the sun is quite soothing.
