view from the back yard

this morning, my friend texted me to check out the sunrise.

so. glad. i did. it looked something like this:


i was using another friend's camera, so i wasn't quite used to it but didn't want to miss the sunrise to mess with the settings* (silly nikons!). i was so grateful she had lent it to me last night for a project, so i could at least capture something of this wonder.


yeah. the sky was completely on fire.  i couldn't believe how breathtaking it was.

it was a nice reminder that every day is new. and because literally ten minutes later the sky was completely bland and gray with no trace of what i'd witnessed, it was also a reminder to savor the beautiful moments in life. sometimes, they're what keep us going.

in other news, i'm in the middle of finals week. pretty sure my friend hannah captured my feelings perfectly.

*the iso was something like 1600 and i couldn't find out where to change it fast enough. and the color balance is off, but i have no time to mess with it now....finalssssweeeeeeekk.......

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing! I think I might have had a glimpse of that from my window during finals week (whether or not the same day I don't know) but was too furiously studying to relish it.

Looks like Utah, does that mean you are back? I haven't been following your blog that well lately, life got hectic for a bit. If you are indeed back we should get together and catch up. I will be there in a few days.

Love it! Thanks for the great reminder to us all. That is one benefit of leaving so early and coming home later for work that I usually get to witness some amazing sunrises and sunsets. Sorry about the camera troubles, but I think what you captured is awesome, despite that.
