Cotton Candy for the Eye

I love, love, love, the big picture window we put in our bedroom that looks east to Mt. Timpanogos and the Wasatch Range. Most mornings before sunrise I sit in my chair by this window reading my scriptures, and when the room slowly brightens as the sun rises, I usually take a few moments to watch the scene out our window - the horizon begins to change from dark to light, shadows turn into mountains and trees aglow with perfect picture taking morning light, the birds begin flying back and forth through the hollow behind our house and Utah wakes to a new day. On occasion, like yesterday morning, I am rewarded with scenes like this. I quickly grabbed my camera, and after firing off several shots the show was gone, the sky clouded over to a dull gray. Just a few glorious seconds that gave me a beautiful image to remember during my day.
