“September Sunrise” – Marble Lake

“September Sunrise” - Marble Lake

“Have you ever seen the dawn? Not a dawn groggy with lack of sleep or hectic with mindless obligations and you about to rush off on an early adventure or business, but full of deep silence and absolute clarity of perception? A dawning which you truly observe, degree by degree. It is the most amazing moment of birth. And more than anything it can spur you to action. Have a burning day.”
― Vera Nazarian

Dawn arrived cool and crisp, just below freezing, touching the earth with a light frosting. After the warm summer, the lake was still warm and mist hovered above the water in dancing tendrils of gold. Autumn has arrived in Ontario and though I will miss the long warm days, there is something about this snap and freshness in the air that is so invigorating. The heat parched plants of summer almost take on new life and vitality as the mists flow over them.

The light this time of year has a different feel, a warmth that is lacking in the direct sun of summer. As the days shorten, there is a promise of many wonderful moments that await me.

  1. As someone who never sees the dawn (without being terribly grumpy about it), you make it sound so wonderful, that I’m disappointed about what I’m missing out on. Very beautifully written, and a photo of what looks like a gorgeous place to wake up in.

  2. Amazing picture, Ed!! Beautifully explained and trust me every different place got the different beauty of Dawn 🙂

  3. Amazing again, I wrote another poem about an hour ago about the dawn.
    Gee, this is magical.

    This photo speaks to me, it’s tactile and inviting in a mystical way.
