Sisters in Sunrises 7/27/14

Welcome to Sisters in Sunrises – part two!  Debi Bradford and I both got up at the crack of dawn to photograph the sunrise.  I have her link attached to her name…above.  She is an incredible photographer, I think you will enjoy her site.   She is in North Carolina, and I am in New Jersey…the last one we did we compared Florida and N.C.  My weather was iffy, but I put out an intention that it would be a beautiful sunrise.

No sunrise is complete without a giant lemon on the boardwalk!  This is what I saw when I arrived.

Just cresting the horizon….

A little close up and the sky looked like it was on fire!

Caught a seagull in flight (just to the left of the jetty)…

I think that is the same seagull…

And the view of the boardwalk as I left!

I drove home and as soon as I got inside, the sky opened up and it rained cats and dogs!!

There is something amazing about viewing a sunrise.  The energy it exudes is beautiful, and stays with you all day.  Ahhhhh!

Poor resolution. But he's there!

Imagine my surprise when I tried to photograph a flying pelican, and later realized a shark had photobombed the shot!  You have to look real close (zoom in) – the pelican is to the left of center…and the shark is to the left of that above the break line in surf.  See, I knew there were sharks of there…The chances of my dream of ocean swimming are getting smaller…and smaller…

I was so excited to get up to see the sunrise today.  A fellow blogger (who has an amazing site, Debi Bradford Photography…at…debibradford,)and I,  decided to compare the sunrise today.  (please understand she is a “real photographer” while I shot my photos with my cellphone…you get the picture…haha)

Debi urged me to spend time with the sunrise.  She said, “I highly recommend witnessing a sunrise as often as possible.  There’s just something about it – the solitude, the miracle – what it does to your soul is incredible.”  Turns out she is correct.  I feel energized and excited to walk in this day with a renewed spirit.  It did touch my soul and I am very grateful.

There it is!
There it is!

Debi said we’d be Sisters in Sunrises!  I like the way that sounds.  I like the way I feel.  I will forgive myself for the countless sunrises I have missed…I live a block away from seeing this every morning!  I have learned to accept that everything happens when…and the way it is supposed to.  So, as with many other hardships or beautiful things missed, I will not have regrets.  This is the time I am supposed to explore this.

Goodbye for now...
Goodbye for now…

Thank you Debi!  I am so happy I did this.  I have set my intentions for this beautiful day and I live in the place of love.  For those of you who can personally witness a sunrise, I too, urge you to do it.  You will not be disappointed.  And for those who are not able to be there in person, I truly hope that the energy I experienced is living in these photos and that you receive a piece of this time.  Namaste
