As the month of October came to a close, I happened to have several great outings and posted new content day after day through the weekend. It felt great until November 3rd and then it all stopped. I can’t be the only one who refreshed my iPhone, tablet and desktop every few minutes literally for days waiting for an answer to an election that really does feel like the most important one in a generation. With this country divided, a decision needed to be made on which way we would move forward and, after days of counting, that decision finally became clear.

This is not a political page but to ignore such an event seems foolish. In any case, I wanted a strong sunrise shot to start off the week and found this one from April 24, 2018 in my ‘to be posted’ archive. The title came quickly – A New Day Dawns – and seemed to capture the feeling I had this weekend. I hope you appreciate the image and that we all take the President-elect’s words to heart: “But now, let’s give each other a chance. It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric. To lower the temperature. To see each other again. To listen to each other again. To make progress, we must stop treating our opponents as our enemy. We are not enemies. We are Americans.”
