One Beautiful Morning

This morning was such a beautiful start to the day that I could not resist stopping to take photos on my way to work. I think you can click on any photo to make it larger.

 At the top of the driveway, the Harvest Moon stopped me in my tracks. What a lovely sight, particularly with the sun's rays beginning to paint the sky. Yesterday was the Autumnal Equinox, when day and night are supposedly the same length. I am beginning to see the difference in the mornings now, as the sun is not yet up when I leave for work. Soon it will still be dark when I leave.

Moon over mountain, 
 and hanging below the branches like an ornament.

 Through the meadow grass

The sun made his ruddy presence known. Red sky at morning--rain on the way, I hope.
Down by the lake, it was moon over mountain over water. The moon is just faintly visible above the hill, to the left.

I write a lot about the moon, it seems. You can read past posts and see more photos by clicking here.

Who could resist it? I am often in danger of being late for work :) but the photos are more important to me at this point in my life.

What wonderful photos; I think I'd be late all the time with views like that to take photos of!

The Harvest Moon was incredibly beautiful here too. Sometimes we neglect to see what is in front of us.
Thanks for reminding us to open our eyes and really "see."

I love all your posts. They remind me of down home - where my heart will always be.

Thank you, laoi!

Barb, I understand the longing to come back. There is something about these hills that acts like a magnet to those who love them.

What absolutely gorgeous photographs, you certainly do live in a beautiful place. One day I must visit West Virginia and see it for myself.
