Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

“Silent night, holy night, all is calm, all is bright

Round yon virgin Mother and Child, holy
Infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Silent night, holy night, shepherds quake at the sight,
Glories stream from heaven afar, heavenly hosts sing
Alleluia.
Christ the Saviour is born,
Christ the Saviour is born.
Silent night, holy night,
Son of God, love’s pure light,
Radiant beams from
Thy holy face, with the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth.
Silent night, holy night, wondrous star, lend thy light;
With the angels let us sing,
Alleluia to our King.
Christ the Saviour is born,
                                                                                   Christ the Saviour is born.”                                                 ~The Temptations

“Purple Sky Majesty”

_DSC0087-copy

First light occurs before sunrise and is usually called civil twilight.  In the featured image for this post, you can still see “star trails” in the purple sky.  To achieve the trailing essence of the stars, I used a very long exposure – almost one minute and used both a tripod and cable release to keep the camera very steady.

Pre-dawn is very, very quiet and has its own special color of light.  Enjoy!
