Dawn usually finds me curled up on the couch with my first cup of coffee. I like to get up early but rarely step outside until after the sun is up so it took me a few days to find a picture to meet A Word in Your Ear’s latest challenge – Dawn. New Year’s Day is different though and while most of my family is sound asleep I get up as early as I can and take a walk to begin the new year with a fresh start. This picture was from my January 1st, 2010 walk during a wind storm on Decatur Island. The clouds were dark and heavy when I began but as the wind blew an opening for the sun I shielded my camera from the salt spray and quickly snapped this photo.
