Last night I stepped outside to see and feel the Full Moon, but the predawn hours are my favorite time of day, so I waited until this morning to photograph this event.
Just before the sun was set to rise, I grabbed my camera and my tripod and headed outside. The street light reflecting on my neighbors palm tree made the perfect frame for this morning's descent of February's Full Moon.
Speaking of the predawn hours, I wanted to share with you my favorite morning music. I love the Native American flute music of R. Carlos Nakai.
The first CD I bought was Canyon Trilogy back in 1989 and although I have several more now, my favorite piece is still from this one. Star for the Morning Star reaches down to the very core of my soul and touches me in a way that no other genre of music ever has. For me, except for listening to nature, there is no better way to greet the dawn. This music will make you want to head to a lonely beach, the mountains, a river or a stream and just sit and let yourself get lost in what you're hearing and seeing before you. It will wrap its arms around you and provide you with a sense of peace on even the darkest days.
Stressed? Just shut your eyes and envision your favorite place in nature where you wish you were at this very moment and listen to sounds of R. Carlos Nakai…
