Fresh Art: Moonrise at Yavapai Point

NOTE:  Today begins the release of a series of images from our trip to the American southwest in 2004.  Enjoy, and come back frequently to see this fresh art!

Getting up early to catch the sunrise at the lip of the Grand Canyon, Becky and I were treated to a beautiful early glow in the sky, with the Moon leading the Sun by a few hours.  Sunrises like this make me feel like I can see almost every color possible.

Moonrise at Yavapai Point is available through my online gallery, and is available in a variety of sizes.

Happy Easter

Darla and I took a spin toward Babler State Park for an Easter sunrise service. I’d not been to a sunrise service before, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Add to that that the service was delivered outside my own denominational orientation, and that added a bit of trepidation to the pot.

Despite the 35-degree weather — offset by some hot chocolate — the service was terrific. The sun just crested the hill behind the preacher as the service ended. Simply beautiful.

Follow that up with the best chicken-fried steak I’ve ever had, combined with the all the wonderful gifts of life represented by the celebration of Easter, and this Sunday was indeed a good Sunday.
