Suddenly Sunrise {SOL 10-7-14}

It's been dark and rainy for the past few days.  Not that I'm complaining.  I'm in the mood for fall, warm sweaters, and campfires so the recent burst of warm temperatures we've been having was not welcome.

Every now and then, I'm in the mood for a cool, rainy day.

The colors of fall are beginning to burst here in southeastern Wisconsin.  You could really tell this weekend. The trees are tipped in red, yellow and orange.  They know this is their last "hurrah!" before they drop their leaves and hunker down for winter.

Rainy days are to be expected as the season changes.

Yesterday morning when I left for school, the cool rain drops pelted my windshield.  I drove in almost total darkness as the dawn began to break.

Almost to school, a bright light caught my eye in my rear view mirror.  Looking back, the sun was breaking through the clouds, spreading a brilliant pink light as if to say, "I'm still here!", adding to the beauty of  fall around me.
Turns out the changing leaves are not the only thing of beauty this autumn.


  1. Beautiful photo and beautiful notice during a busy morning. I also love fall, but seeing a bright sunrise is always a bonus for my day!

  2. When the time changes, our outlook changes. I get to see the full moon when I head out to the gym in the early morning. It helps me somehow to know I am part of the changing of the season.

  3. Looks like the promise of a beautiful day!

  4. The last hurrah, but those sunrises will keep us going every day. Beautifully written and the photo is amazing. Thanks Jennifer.

  5. Love that you took the time to notice, note and write about it. Just want our young writers need to do. Find those beautiful moments throughout our days. Thanks for sharing!

  6. On some days (when it hasn't rained) I have admired the beauty of mornings but I have never stopped my car to take a picture nor captured the scene in words. You did it. It was a pleasure to read and see your morning.

  7. What a stunning photograph - and good for you for stopping to take the picture and share it with us!

  8. What a spectacular entrance to the day! Gorgeous!
