Sunrise on a Morning in May


"For one minute, walk outside,

stand there, in silence, look up at the sky,

and contemplate how amazing life is."

– Unknown

The first miracle of each day is the rising of the sun.

There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope.

~Bern Williams

The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere.

~John Muir

At sunrise the world is luminous but not clear. It is those we know and live with and love that elude us. You can love completely without understanding completely."

~from the movie "A River Runs Through It"

Some sunrises are like a loved one's smile. They set the world afire.

Today is my dad's birthday and I cherish every sunrise we shared.

Happy Birthday, Papa.

  6. There is something very special about sunrises and sunsets, I love taking photos of them.

  7. It is always a bit mysterious,the light of a sunset or sunrise.

  8. Hi there - me again - the restaurant car is a special tram that runs on a loop around the city - its not part of the normal trams - although one that serves coffee would be a great idea! SM
