“Listen to the salutation to the dawn, 

Look to this day for it is life, the very life of life.

In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of our existence – the bliss of growth, the splendor of beauty.

For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision,

But today well spent makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well therefore to this day.

Such is the salutation to the dawn.”

  1. Veronica, you seem to find just the right time of day, at just the right spot, then you bring all of the elements together with just the right perspective and the perfect balance! I especially like the first shot with Longs Peak in the background, and the boulders at lake’s edge make me feel like I am caught in the middle of a very special moment of tranquility.
