Greet the Day

Posted by Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 2 August 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

The day comes brightly on an early spring morning in New Jersey.
I made this image a few years ago on my way to work (back in my working days, before I retired). The spot was one of my favorites and it was very close to my office, so I could usually drag myself out of bed and catch a sunrise to start my work day.
I owe Mother Nature lots of thanks for these wonderful New Jersey and Pennsylvania mornings.

- "To photograph is to hold ne's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues. The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
