Morning Time

Uploaded: April 02, 2007


As the warm sun rises above the mountains, the yellow early morning light illuminates the hands of time reminding me that another day has arrived and we have one more to spend together.

Thank you very much Donna! It was just natural sunrise light coming in through our kitchen window illuminating our display shelves. This was exactly as I saw it. Thanks for commenting and I hope all is well! #4131041

I love these anniverary clocks, Jim and I have one, thanks for the idea to use it in a still life composition! :-)
Of course I'm not surprised that Alaska has gold for sunlight! Lovely Phil along with your words!

Leeza is signing a scholorship for volleyball next Wednesday with a school here in Texas! I'll get photos! #4135144

Great news about Leeza, Joannie! I am sure she will do awesome and grandma will get to see her play many more games. I hope to watch her on TV someday!

My grandparents had a clock like this (the real one) and I remember it so well that I found one on eBay and had to have it. I love these clocks and would still like to get my hands on the BIG expensive German made one. This is pretty close and I got a great deal on it. I enjoy it everyday. I just happened to walk by and saw the sun shining in our kitchen window coming over the mountains and it illuminated this clock beautifully. I just had to try a few exposures.

Thanks for stopping and have a great Easter holiday! #4138708
