Morning Clouds/Flint Hills Discovery Center

Often when I walk in the morning, I wish that I had my camera with me to take pictures of the sunrise. This morning, I actually remembered to bring my camera with me, so I went to the uppermost patio at the Flint Hills Discovery Center to take some photos. The Discover Center is just a few blocks away from The Morning Star and is a fun destination even when it is closed.  It has a walking path that winds up around the Northeastern side of the building, passing through a native plants area.

It was pitch black when I arrived at the Discovery Center, but I was hopeful for vivid skies.

The sunrise this morning was obscured by clouds, but the clouds had their own beauty.

… And, of course, shortly afterward, it started to rain – just a little.

I was happy to catch some interesting cloud photos this morning. Then I had to rush home to make yummy breakfast!

Have a great day!

Golden Moment

This morning, while waiting for muffins to come out of the oven and guests to come downstairs for breakfast, I decided to take advantage of a little free time to take photos of a mocktail for Morning Star Weddings – my other blog. The only trouble – I also had to wait for the sun to come up and get high enough in the morning sky so that I could get enough light for my photos. So I got all set up and played around with practice shots while waiting. This is one that I took of flowers that I was using as background filler. I was happy that it turned out because I really liked the contrast of materials. Have a lovely day!
