Have you ever looked at something in nature and been awestruck? I mean, jaw open, eyes wide, speechless kind of awestruck? It happened to me this morning. My alarm went off, and I was about to hit the snooze button when I noticed that my bedroom was glowing pink. My first thought was disaster. Fire, nuclear bomb, Lady Gaga…something.
I realized it was the sun rising, quickly grabbed my Nikon D70 and braved the frigid morning air to take this picture.
I love how the pink in the sky is reflecting off the snow on the ground. Even as I stare at this picture 14 hours later, a sense of calm comes over me. Amidst all the noise and chaos of my day, there’s always this: simple beauty. It lasted only a few moments, but I was able to capture it in this photo.
Now, back to life. And the Jersey Shore. Don’t judge!
