At the dawn of light

Dawn . Winter 2008 . by cc
Dawn of light outside my bedroom window. click photo to enlarge.

Waking up just before dawn, feeling a little drowsy.
I was standing in front of the window, waiting, staring into the morning darkness.
It always seems so calm and serene this time of the day, with birds chirping and the refreshing light breezes gently blowing to my face.
Slowly, threads of light emitted from the horizon.
I looked up and there it was, the glorious rays of sunrise.
It seemed like eternity, all 10 minutes of it.
My mind was perpetually stuck in this amazing freeze frame.
The dazzling moment stayed with me for the entire day.

How can I complain, when nature has empowered me with such privilege,
To see the brilliant colours, to feel the flow of emotions;
To sense the wonders, to appreciate the beauty that is life.

    I believe one can only get this kind of dawn scenery in countryside. I wake up every morning, seeing only concrete buildings around me. ~sigh~

    CC: I’m actually not staying in the countryside, unless you count new zealand as one big countryside. LOL

    Your posts and photos have kept me going knowing that the world isn’t just all ugly, grey and horrid but beautiful if one knows where to go.

    CC: Glad that they have helped. 🙂

    You must have a pretty amazing life, living amidst such beauty… and having the keen eye to see and capture it.

    The NZ gov should give you a grant or something for helping make NZ look so great in your blog! 🙂

    CC: I do feel blessed and am very thankful. I didn’t make NZ look good, it is that great, I’m just capturing it in my frames. 🙂 Thanks for your compliments.


  28. EVo Says:

    This is totally amazing. how often does this happen?

    and what camera are you using?it’s awesome!

    CC: Quite often. I’m using Nikon D80, but scene as great as this can easily be captured using any camera. I’ve use my point-and-shoot to capture with similar results too.

    Love this picture CC! 🙂

    I chose this picture for a reason as well. It’s like a dawning of a new life for me.

    I guess that’s the reason why it’s not happening! :)..I just remembered that before she met her ONE she was always out having fun and just treating herself well.

    I think I should start doing it by now. 🙂 Thanks for dropping by 🙂
