Pre-dawn

Those few moments when it’s light but the sun still hasn’t come over the horizon are my favorite – pre-dawn.

The world is still asleep, save for me and the birds. It’s incredibly quiet and still, the only sounds I hear are the birds announcing a new dawn and my coffee pot chugging away.

On cloudy days, this creates really gloomy and gray light, but on clear mornings like this morning, the sky is pink and orange:

Finally, an enormous, glowing ball of orange pops over the horizon:

And then minutes later, the whole world is bright and beautiful:

The sun is up and a new day has begun! Make it a great one! 🙂
