Artist's Description

Each and every morning as I woke up in Green Turtle Cay, I would go out to our little deck, greet the morning and watch the sunrise. Coffee in hand and sleepy eyed, I was so delighted/contented to watch the world in front of me slowly change, until the sun gradually peaked through the clouds. Extremely tranquil, it just made for such a beautifully happy start of the day!

This photograph was shot in Green Turtle Cay, located in the out islands of the Bahamas with a Canon 40D, equipped with an 18-100mm lens. Every time I look at this photograph, I can’t help to think of Cat Steven’s lyrics. It is also one of my all time favorite songs!!

“Morning Has Broken”

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the world

Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God’s recreation of the new day

So, if you like, have a cup of coffee and a listen on me!!
