Mt. Lassen Sunrise

For this week’s photo challenge, explore the vibrant, hopeful colors of your favorite sunrise or sunset.

These three sunrises have something in common, even though they are captured at different locations, they all feature our volcano Mt.Lassen (CA,) in the background.

I took the first photo in this post, while driving to work one morning. I just stopped by the side of the road to admire the glorious sunrise.

The second photo is taken at a friend’s ranch, while checking on some rescue horses, that I had at a pasture there for a while.

The last photo, featuring the Sacramento River, with Mt.Lassen in the background, is taken while standing at Sundial Bridge, in Redding (CA.)

Mt. Lassen, and Mt.Shasta, our two volcanoes, are like magnets. It’s like they’re forcing you to pay them attention. Especially during sunrise, and sunset. Since I’m a morning person I catch more sunrises than sunsets. I’d love to see a sunrise/sunset from your favorite location!

Waiting

sr1

Share a snapshot that shows a sense of waiting.

 

On my way to work, waiting for the sun. Not that I mind waiting for the sun. In fact I often plan my day to be able to catch the sunrise. I feel the most productive in the morning (it’s 5.36 am now…) It’s my favorite time of the day. Are you a morning person?

 

Motivation is what gets you started. 

Habit is what keeps you going.

Have a wonderful day! I’m heading out to find the perfect place to wait for today’s sunrise to bless us with its presence.

Love,

Ms Zen

 

 

 

Satisfaction 2

This weekend we’re having temperatures around +110 F (+43.4 C,) the only option to stay sane is to make sure to get some time outside EARLY. I had some fencing to do, and I can assure you that I was very happy that I started at sunup. Around 8am it started to get closer to 100. Have you ever pounded down t-posts by hand? With some encouraging support from my dog I worked until I ran out of t-posts around 10am. Am I complaining? NO! It was actually very satisfying. I felt extremely strong. Things went smooth. The line of t-posts was reasonably straight….AND I was making the fence for my place, and not for anyone else! …to be continued 🙂

I hope you’re having an awesome weekend!

Love,

Ms Zen
