Morning Has Broken

The Sunrise. What a way to start the day. How would you like to start a few of them with me?

The following images were taken on various mornings during the first two weeks of August while I was at my new place.

Morning has broken, like the first morning.
Cat Stevens



rising sun 6
Know where to find the sunrise and sunset times and note how the sky looks at those times, at least once.
Marilyn vos Savant



rising sun
Woke up from another dream
With the clouds in my head
Sat down by the window
Watched the sunrise burning red
George Weiss - Blue Rodeo




sunrise again
Climb up on some hill at sunrise. Everybody needs perspective once in a while, and you'll find it there.
Robb Sagendorph




early morning golden mist2
There's never one sunrise the same or one sunset the same.
Carlos Santana




magenta sky
And then I saw the sunrise above the cotton sky like a candycane delight.
Gordon Lightfoot




mornign peachy gold
It's another tequila sunrise,
stirrin slowly across the sky
Don Henley - Eagles

The biggest cliche in photography is sunrise and sunset. (oh well!)
Catherine Opie




morning has broken3
And here is a sunrise to set on your sill
The ghosts of the dawn moving near
Dan Fogelberg


Thankfully, sunrises begin much later in the morning for the next several months. I need to get my city house sold and go back so I can enjoy them.

It looks idyllic.

All of them humble me as a photog, but sheer my soul as a fan.
Gotta say the "Tequila" is a glimpse of healing heaven!!!!!

Brilliant sunrises, and the quotes, I love 'em.

Beautiful! I always like sunrises better than sunsets...

Brian Miller said...

There's something magical about the combination of light reflected on water. Fabulous pictures.

Daryl said...

with morning views like these i would be up and at 'em camera in one hand coffee in the other ..

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

It's really gorgeous there. Wish you much luck in selling the house in the city... not sure what your real estate market is like there, but here a house sale can take more time than some people even like to consider. Not to worry.... someone will fall in love with your house. xox

messymimi said...

To quote the Cajuns, "C'est si bon!"

Linda Wildenstein said...

So beautiful there. I would actually look forward to being a morning person with that view available.....
The photos are each so lovely. Our mountains are to the east here and so our sunrise is sorta anticlimactic but the sunsets...now that's a different story.
Hope your city house sell quickly and that you can become..settled. I know that would weigh heavily on my being. Oma Linda

These are wonderful photos and quotations. Beautiful.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

Holy cow. Do not ever move again. EVER.

Jackie said...

Hilary, it would be hard for me to not be at this spot every morning and evening. What a view. I'm so happy for you!! Beautiful....

Linda said...

Hilary, those are all beautiful! My first and second favorites are "morning has broken" and "tequila sunrise". You should make those into prints and frame them. Just gorgeous!

Maggie May said...

beautiful sky studies. I love them all.

Nothing short of SPECTACULAR here. Wow, Hilary.

Kerri Farley said...

Your view is amazing!!! Hope your house sells soon!!

Linda said...

Sunrises like this could make a morning person out of even me. :)

Tabor said...

When are you going to find time to make coffee? Gorgeous!!

Anvilcloud said...

How fortunate for you. One of my gripes in life is how restricted JQP is to some of the finer views that life has to offer. Not that I begrudge anybody, but I sure wish there was more public access.

Red said...

Awesome photos. it's your quotes that are amazing. all these performers are favorites of mine. Cat Stevens? how I wish he'd continued his music.

Rita said...

These are all beautiful. No two sunrises are the same--true!true! You have a gorgeous view. Hopefully you'll be back there soon for good and all. :)

Each one is a first place winner in my eyes.

Indrani said...

Beautiful breaking moments of the day!

Crabby McSlacker said...

OMFG.

I have no grown-up words for how beautiful those photos are. Wowza!

Glo said...

Gorgeous! Morning has Broken is still humming through my head :)

Kerry said...

Phooey on Catherine Opie. I hope to see more of these as you settle in. :)

June said...

Ms. Opie is a snob, and has no soul.
I love sunrises and sunsets, for the reason Carlos Santana cites.

Dianne said...

the second shot made me gasp at its beauty!!
and what a wonderful new place !!

hugs

Sandi McBride said...

glorious...what else could one say?

The Chicken's Consigliere said...

Holy Cow. Beautiful. I'm at a loss of words. And a little jealous:-)

Anita said...

I am still in awe of how you and Frank lucked up with that property! Your photos of its pleasures are starting out nicely.

Anita said...

Forgot to say, I am a fan of the genius, Marilyn vos Savant. You always find the best quotes and write really good captions, yourself.

L. D. said...

Your place on the lake is so wonderful. It looks like it sits on the perfect sight for great lake views. Wonderful shots.

Karen (formerly kcinnova) said...

Hilary, these photographs are so beautiful they made me cry, starting with the very first one.
