Appreciating the Breeze

This morning I dragged my butt out of bed before 5 am and made my way to the lake with camera in hand. One of my biggest loves is capturing the beauty of nature on camera and sharing it with the world. This morning I found myself complaining A LOT! It went something like this:

What the hell was I thinking?
Why am I out in this heat this early in the morning!
My feet hurt
What’s that pain in my side, I don’t like that …
I’m hot
I’m covered in sweat
OH God, what am I doing
Too flippin late to turn back now
Where are all the animals, even they know it’s too hot for this shit
I’m exhausted already
I can’t breathe … where is the air????
God, it needs to rain!
I can’t wait to get back to my car and the bottle of Gatorade in the console
Oh, this is painful

And then something beautiful happened… I topped the ridge and a breeze came soaring through the trail. That moment when I first felt the breeze upon my skin was nothing less than heavenly. All the things I had been complaining about where non existent for that moment. There were no negative thoughts rushing through my mind any longer… just the wonderful sensation of that cool breeze and a thankful mindset. I made it back to my car with just a handful of photos to share but with a whole new appreciation for something else.

There is nothing more refreshing and beautiful than a breeze when you have been far too long in the stale air. 

Many Blessings,

1st Day of Spring!

This morning I thought I’d take a quick walk around the lake so I got up while it was still very dark outside and made my way over to Radnor Lake. I arrived about 30 minutes before the sunrise so I was able to capture some great photos of the 1st Day of Spring this year.

A Time of New Beginnings.

Spring is the birth of life after after the long (and this year’s harsh) winter. The Earth comes alive with the buzz and hum of new growth and new life. Soon the landscape will be painted with colors from every spectrum. The air will be filled with all kinds of lovely fragrances and the sun will warm us all.

Here are the photos from this morning’s sunrise photoshoot. Click on the images to see the larger view.
