Project Athena - Day 38 (Sunrise/Sunset)

A Colorado Sunrise

The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
— Rumi

I drove to the mountains today looking for THE wildlife/sunset shot of a lifetime. Instead, I experienced a drive through Rocky Mountain National Park during a refreshing, long rain with lightening, and then I watched some elk graze in a gorgeous meadow as the sun set. Somehow, I came away with no pictures that actually fit the theme this week. There was the one of the bull elk drooling buckets of slime down the side of his mouth as he chewed on his grassy dinner...but that would have really been a stretch of the imagination to make it work here.

Maybe there will be a week of "outtakes" and you'll get to see it then. For now, this is from my Sunday morning shoot.
