My Own Private Show

We went camping over the 4th of July weekend. It was so nice being out with the family; riding 4-wheelers, fishing, swimming, and just relaxing. The place we camped at was incredibly gorgeous too.

Some people think I'm crazy, but when I'm camping I love getting up before sunrise and going for walks with my camera. This time of year that requires rising before 5:00 a.m., and it's so satisfying when I step out to something as beautiful as this:

Before the Campers Wake

As the sun rises colors start emerging, and the lake turns into this:

There's just something about watching nature come alive. It's like watching God paint a masterpiece on a canvas; an ever-evolving masterpiece. It makes me feel like I'm watching a private show made just for me.

Next time you're out camping get up before the sun. You won't regret it!

Remember your blessings!

Amber, I don't think you're even sort of crazy. I am right there with you. I love camping, I love getting up early, I love watching mist rise off the edge of lakes and I love soaking it up again via photographs. What's you loony about that?
