Wherever the road takes us ..

Follow the fallen leaves that twist in the breeze, Where the sun rises from west to east, Where the stars are just in grasp, Where gilded Heaven meets our cherished Earth, Where Hades gateway creaks open with desolation, Where lights shine brightly in the night, Where darkness gulps us into its cold embrace, Where sandy dunes glisten a radiant red and gold, Where foamy waves crash down and sparkly topaz, Where the clouds are forever forming endless patterns, Where the picturesque flowers have no names, Where forlorn streets are lost and yet to be named, Where vibrant life is hushed death, Where repugnant death becomes endless life, Where flamboyant colours fill the pastel landscape, Where white and black contrast across a map, Where majestic mountains reach for the crates of Luna, Where broiling Solar warms our sorrowful blue faces, Where droplets of crystal ice fall onto our skin, Where ghastly gusts of wind whip wildly through our hair, Where a snow flaked blanket falls to our feet, Where staunched and compassionate love is endless, Where true comradeship of friends is depthless, Follow where ever the road may take us, Granted that we shall always be together.

Grand Canyon Sunrise

Capturing the Grand Canyon at sunrise is a very tricky experience. The shadows cast by the canyons are dark and the golden light barely works its magic. Was happy with how this turned out.
