Eternal Sunrise





"The grand show is eternal.  It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls." --with thanks to John Muir for expressing what is in my heart.

To see other skies on seas and continents and islands from around the world, visit Sky Watch Friday and enjoy.

Life all around us really is an eternal show. Muir said it well. And you've captured it wonderfully.

Beautiful. I like the contrast between the shiloutted trees and the sky

I think this must be the same everywhere. But the big difference is what the light touches. I like the things it touches in your photo.

Gorgeous picture and I love those words. They are perfect together. I too love sunsets and sunrises... There's nothing better!!!

YOur composition here is spot on: you have managed to get the sun to show just a bit of itself to enable us to enjoy the half-light. Such a lovely background with that silhouette in the foreground.

Good job ...

No one brings out the poetry of the natural world better than John Muir.

Very beautiful sky shot!

Skipper is a cutie. Just got home from bathing Miss Gracie - wrestling a wet dog will wear a girl out!

Beautiful - words and pictures. You've reminded me that I still haven't read any of John Muir's writings. They crop up all over the place - and of course he was a Scot!
