First Morning's Light

One of my favorite things to do at Tree Ring is get up before sun rise and walk to the dry pond.

Sometimes you can see a thick blanket of clouds hovering.  Just as the sun peeks over the trees, the rays of sun slice through minute by minute until you can't see the blanket any more.  It's incredible. 

I love the angle of the sun in February and the casts of the tree shadows.

I try to be quiet, but I never catch any wildlife in the clearing.

Even the lichen is beautiful at that time of day.

Then I check the gate,

Grab some breakfast,

And think about how fortunate I am.
