Photo of the Day 1/365

Sunrise through the Distant Trees

This photo, for me, shows the hope of the new year with the sun rising through the trees. To me, the trees represent the thoughts, worries, and fears of life and the clouds represent the mystery of what is to come. We can choose to see the clouds and worry if they thicken and blot out the sun – or we can just enjoy the beauty of the colors and let those worries handle themselves. Although we are never promised happiness, my goal (I don’t do “resolutions”) is to try to be more content and rooted in what I CAN do. Happy New Years, everyone!

Watching Out

Images Exposed Daily Photo Challenge

Monday Closeup: This photo was taken a number of years ago in Cape May, New Jersey. I don’t often get close enough to the gulls to get a closeup. Many times, the only way is if they’re injured or ill. I managed this one as he was sitting on a pier and was watching another bird. He was only their briefly, but I got the shot.

Just a guy with interests in photography, karate, and (sigh) work. I post one of my photos and a quote every day. I like to make a beautiful dent in the the negativity of social media. The photos are mine, so please don't reuse without permission. I hope you enjoy!
