This morning, something awakened me just after 5a.m. I got up, sauntered around for a minute, then tried to go back to sleep. Just before 6:30, a decision was made: it was time to grab the cameras and head out the door. Early mornings, the time before dawn, are often wonderful times to enjoy, once you get yourself up and moving. Today was no exception. The forecast had called for morning fog, giving way to a partly cloudy day by afternoon. I happen to enjoy fog. It’s a visual equalizer, stripping down subjects to their core, not unlike black and white photography when you think about it. Anyway, the official sunrise, if there had been one, would’ve been at 7:28. I was trolling through East Williamson County’s Blackland Prairie roads well before 7, taking it all in. The photos taken here were all done in about one hour, the last one, the windmill, just before 8. With the exception of the featured photo, Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, in Wuthrich Hill, the photos posted were taken in order. “Sunrise” was during the time at the little cemetery, also at Prince of Peace. In all, I drove 19.6 miles for this little outing. When you can, friends, get up and take it all in. Life’s too short to sleep it away.
