evolution of a sunrise
When I first arrived in the River Bottoms this morning, the moon was right up there basking in the beauty of the sun coming up.
This is why I take my camera with me when I ride.
It changes by the minute.
There's that red ball on the horizon that we call the sun!
Good morning, sunshine.
Now you know I couldn't resist including a shot of the mighty Missouri River, which seemed fuller today. Either there is rain up north, or they've opened up something and turned more water loose (they do that, you know).
I was thinking, as I rode, that if people had to travel a thousand miles to see a pretty sunrise or sunset... if it weren't an almost everyday occurrence... we'd all be saving our money to go have a look at this miraculous sight. But because it's with us so much, we miss its beauty by taking it for granted.
