´Twas the day after Christmas

´Twas the day after Christmas
When the clock chimed seven
Hastily I awakened
To watch the sun rise to heaven

Out of bed I flew
There´s tradition to brew
And stills to show
The beautiful view 

One click, two
Three too few
That will do
Here they are for you. (Poem by Charie)

After Christmas Sunset 2017

Every year, on December 26, I've taken photos of the sun rising from my front door. I woke up late this year and missed it but I was lucky enough to see the sunset from my favorite spot in Central California.

I hope everyone had a happy Christmas day.

Something I look forward to

For several years now, on the 26th of December, I've taken a photo from my front door of the sunrise. Today there was not much to see as the fog was so thick. It wasn't until an hour after the "scheduled" sunrise when the sun finally broke through the fog to light up our day. So nice after several days of rain. We need rain though after 3 years of drought. Grateful for these blessings.
“One grateful thought is a ray of sunshine.  A hundred such thoughts paint a sunrise.  A thousand will rival the glaring sky at noonday - for gratitude is light against the darkness.”  Richelle E.

Sunrise - December 26, 2014

This is the second year I've taken a sunrise shot after Christmas day outside my door in Central California. Today, I saw these birds flying in the sky and made a lovely guest appearance on this photo.
