I awoke this morning in time to see the early morning light infuse the horizon with a pale yellow glow that stole the shadows from the still sleeping world. Dawns enlightening of the landscape in shimmering hope and the dream yet to be evoked in me a fiery zeal to seize this day as if tomorrow would never come*. It was in this mindset that I found this image from a few sunsets ago.

A prelude to monsoons yet to come, this shot was taken just after a tiny squall passed overhead. It was missed due to a focus on the miraculous rainbows shot before it. Now found, I am once again left in awe at the sweeping grandeur of the southern Arizona high desert. There is no place I have ever been that matches this neglected paradise in the diversity of weather and its presentation. In the high desert, pastels overpower the bold, saturated skies of other provinces, revealing that in subtlety there is power. Here, the desolate becomes noble and the dull alive.

As I gaze across the valley plains towards the final resting place of Cochise, with its granite walls reflecting the golden red tint of a warriors memory, I understand how incredibly blessed I am to witness and share these visions of beauty. I thank my Father daily for this gift and the calling to share it with the world. I remain His scribe.
