From Genesis in the Bible, it can be taken that the lights created, were to divide, to rule, and to give light. Contemplating the pictured September morning, it is easy to accept the role of the sun, to give light, to divide, and to rule. (Compare to Brushed by the Sun) Beholding this grand creation, one’s eye is indeed directed by the sun. And while some may debate the Genesis account of the creation, the genesis of “day”, moves undeniably with the sun. Our own perception of the scene, and our day, are greatly influenced by the sun in our environment. If my thoughts don’t reach you – feel free to enjoy your own as you view this image.

    This is absolutely beautiful love the wonderful colors and lighting.

  • Thanks for enjoying this scene. The weather and air texture provide such variety. Sometimes the nearest features are softened or even obscured. Then in moments like this, the storm passes and you can see forever rather clearly.
