I have been waiting all year for the sun to rise where I could capture this shot. This is the week for it; today was the first day. I had envisioned having the sun as the same width as the chapel, but my calculations were way off. I will try again tomorrow. Still, I like the way this came out.

This shot, at this time of year, is a symbol and an anchor for my journey in faith. In one week, those of us who believe will celebrate the rising of our savior. That rising paved the path for my unlikely redemption. Each day's sunrise is a reminder of that gift.

The southern Arizona high desert is a place where the overwhelming beauty and grace of His world is displayed each day anew. How my path brought me here is nothing short of a miracle. The opportunity to witness and share the majesty that unfolds before me is a blessing beyond what I deserve.

I remain His scribe

Rob, this is a beautiful shot. Your comment was a beautiful sentiment. Take it from someone who also experienced a miracle: You are more deserving than you think. Merry Christmas, my friend.

Absolutely stunning capture!! Is this at Miracle Valley by chance? And seriously, YOU are a miracle and people would love to read about your life's story. I would be the first one to buy your book.
