I’m a bit behind on the pictures, but I’m still trying to grab them and upload here.

On Tuesday I decided to drive in over my bike commute route with the specific intent that I would get some better opportunities for pictures.  As I crested the I-78 overpass the sunlight had just lit up the entire western valley with this spectacular early morning light.  However

, by the time I got the car safely parked and jogged back to the overpass, the moment had passed.  On my way back to the car I did capture the eastern sky, but it’s not as spectacular as the western view just moments before:

Eastern winter sunrise

So I think that the thought that goes with this post is to always be open to wondrous sights, events and opportunities.  They will roll on past as sure as the sun rises.
