O Sun that rose in the eastern corner of Earth,
Looking as though you came from under the ground,
When you crossed the sky and entered the deep sea,
Where did you stable your six dragon-steeds?
Now and of old your journeys have never ceased:

I did not sleep, gazing at the moon all night
But the dawning of the day
Was in whiteness of hoar-frost. ~Izumi Shikibu (cited: Diaries of Court Ladies of Old Japan)
the early sun
reaches the valley…

Amazing lighting you have here.
Thank you Teresa..I find the early morning sun to be “amazing.”
Great post, Brenda, thank you very much for joining! 🙂
I was pleasantly surprised that some of you have decided to show us not only light, but shadows. We are all made of light and shadow.
Thank you for hosting this week and for the challenge. I find that I don’t have the photography knowledge to create the beautiful images you offered so decided to review my files to post early morning sun.
Lovely images and wonderful quotes as always Brenda. I especially loved the way you used the light and shadows in every image.
Thank you Tina. It was fun to explore Li Po’s writings for this challenge. I decided that early morning sunlight was a verification of “the sun will come out tomorrow.”
Excellent. Love the subtle plays of light.
I do enjoy reading your comments and finding validation in your words. Thank you John.
Love the quotes/poems and that last shot in particular.
A beautiful, inspiring post. Thank you for showing us the lights and shawdows!
Thank you Amy. I generally spend my mornings watching how the sunlight seems to paint a morning canvas.
