Transcendence

Getting up early is not particularly easy for me, especially on these chilly fall mornings when it would be so much nicer to stay in my nice warm bed. But I've seldom been disappointed when I've made the effort to venture out into the early twilight world. I see things that 90 percent of the world doesn't see because they're still sleeping or working or just not paying attention - just like I do, 90 percent of the time.

I've said before that in any endeavor, if you do the things that 90 percent of those who have tried the same thing will not or cannot do, you'll find yourself in the top 10 percent.

And that's a pretty nice place to be.

Wonderful morning light and lovely blend of colors. This was definitely worth getting up early for!

Sure looks beautiful! Looks like a wonderful time of the day :-). But I don't like getting up early either...or rather: I don't like the thought of it!

That photo is just stunning. STUNNING! I get up early and try to get out into all that's going around during those morning "magic" hours but I rarely come back with a photo that looks like that. Wow.
