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~

Sunrise Over Foggy Meadow~













Be sure to check out more 'Skywatch Friday' posts from around the world at: http://skyley.blogspot.com/

Three to four mornings a week, I like to drive to a nearby pathway and then walk three miles.  I have seen many sunrises there.  Yesterday morning when I arrived, I saw a glimpse of a Red-tailed hawk chase after a cottontail rabbit.  The hawk missed the rabbit, so I went into the tall grass a bit to try and get some images, but I missed also...lucky little cottontail.  As I turned around to get back on the path, I saw this meadow shrouded in a blanket of fog with the sun coming in from the left, it made the scene look almost surreal.  All that was missing was a large stag standing on the other side...funny thing is I saw an 8 pointer and got some long-shots of it a few minutes later down the pathway~

  7. Fog has so many moods and often can transport one into faerieland with a single sunbeam. Just lovely.
