I made this image four minutes before blue hour, the time of day immediately preceding sunrise. During these precious moments, the sun is far below the horizon, coloring the sky a deep blue.
Arcs of white light pierce the morning’s medley of rich colors as the world wakes up. We are witness to the powerful surge of dawn’s energy. And the landscape is suffused with this gorgeous bluish light.
If you catch the magical moment, you can say a blessing of gratitude for the layers of color and optimism that announce the new day. This period has been called "the in-between time when everything is possible."
