Golden Opportunity



It's on mornings like this,


that I feel like I'm living in a 
Gold Mine.



~~~~
~Mornings are filled with golden opportunities~

(for my friends who have become morning people, 
and for those of you who have yet to become one;)

Amazing shots Dawn! I'm a morning person through and through. Sometimes I wish I could sleep in. Just once in a while. But nope, my internal alarm is up and at em!

Flora said...

Wowzers!! beautiful!!...but I'm unbecoming a morning person...our morning was 8:45 am today:(....what is happening:)

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

I'm in the 'yet to become one' category, but this sure does make me wanna rise 'for' the occasion! lol =)

Every now and then I wish I were more of a morning person. And then I roll over and go back to sleep. Thanks (with these photos) for helping me not feel too bad about not getting up early.

That is quite the sunrise. Thanks for sharing it with us!

Wow Dawn, those pictures are stunning! If I had the opportunity to run through post cards like you, it would make becoming a morning person a little easier ;-).

Judy said...

I have definitely become a morning person since moving here to Wisconsin...Beautiful!

Farm Girl said...

I always think of the mornings I missed when I see sunrises like that.
You know when I got married, I didn't want a house or money but I wanted a place to see the sunrise in the morning and the sunset in the evening. It took almost 25 years.
I am so thankful than now I can. I am glad you captured them.

Michelle said...

Gold mine is an under statement. Stunning morning photos. I would become a morning person if I had a greeting like that each morning.

Oh, how I wish I were more a morning person! These are spectacular!

Clint said...

That is drop-dead gorgeous. I am really in tune with nature's sunrises and sunsets. Funny, you know, how they are all pretty, but some are really a statement from God.

What a nice catch, that morning sky is the first thing I look for when waking up.There is a lot of energy and exhiliration to experience this.

Leenie said...

I'm so glad you took your camera with you to collect the gold. Mornings are the BEST and are becoming even better as the days lengthen.

That dawn gold is a precious gift, and so is a day's opportunity.

Stunningly beautiful. Well captured.

bon bon said...

"yet to become one"? that's pretty optimistic of you. these are gorgeous though. could make a coffee drinker out of even me. ;o)

Alan said...

I'm firmly in the "yet to become one" camp. I'd have more luck just staying up all night, quite frankly.

These shots almost make me way to, mind. Amazing, Dawn!

mountain mama said...

Randy said...

Michael Manning said...

These images are just beautiful, Dawn! I'm not up quite this early, but I savor morning scenery with a good cup of hot coffee! Very nicely done!!

Allison said...

Inspiring mornings! I love them too. I thought of you when I was in San Francisco, Dawn, running early in the morning on the steep hilly streets. I'm sure you would have gone farther than me! xoxo

I love the mornings and these photos capture the beauty of the day.
