Rays of Light

The sun rose this morning amongst blue skies and Spanish moss.
It seemed like a good day to photograph the beauty of the sun's rays.
Sunlight reflects against the dew drenched leaves of a Japanese Maple.
Amarillas petals are illuminted in the early morning sun.
Rose petals shine beneath the sun's glare.
The scent of Jasmine perfumes the air in the sun's light.
As the sun begins its descent shadows reach across the yard.
Sun rays reach out to touch the delicate Jasmine petals.
Light dapples the fountain...
and streaks through the tree branches.
Playful cherubs catch a ball of light.
Sunrays burst forth through a bouquet of roses.
Rays of sunlight highlight velvety rose petals.
Palm leaves stand tall against the sun's light.
A hazy glow shades a stem of roses.

Thanks for sharing the Heaven sent rays of light splashing through the garden blooms:).

Awesome photos!! You have captured God's creations so beautifully, Kim!

I just love early morning sunrises, but it's a bit chilly here this early in the spring. I've had to put on my winter coat and fight the Jack Frost the last few mornings.

Thanks for sharing these wonderful shots of your yard.

You've been taking some amazing sun ray shots lately. These are superb! You really do have an eye for composition, AND an eye for beauty! Thanks so much for sharing these. I agree with BEAR's Mom... some of these are worthy of being published!

Oh goodness Kim, your garden is beautiful. I cannot get over all the beautiful blooms. Things that I can only dream about raising in my arid cold climate. You are truly blessed.

You really captured the feeling! We are visiting down south this week and as soon as I see the spanish moss, I get excited. It's romantic, beautiful, and quiet all at once. Wonderful pictures!

What a lovely post! The Spanish Moss, the jasmine, the palms all reminded me of being back down south-namely Charleston where we lived before moving here. I'm an early riser so as to enjoy the beauty of first light. Your photographs are breathtaking.

Thanks for the memories and a lovely start to my day.
