Bend Sunrise

October and November can give us some spectacular sunrises and sunsets. With the exception of yours truly, many people are still asleep when these magnificent natural paintings flash across the sky. Such was the case last Sunday when I was heading to my new church for the 7:30 AM Mass. I arrived in time, about 6:40 AM to take a few photos by the church, but especially by a cross that is placed at the entrance of the St Francis of Assisi Catholic Center. 

Since the church is a modern one, the outline is quite simple, but at least, I was able to compose a fairly good photo of the entrance to the complex, but the cross stole the show that early morning. Too bad that sunrises last 5 to 10 minutes, and worse yet, very few people see them, especially when they occur on a weekend. Thanks to a few early risers like myself, and thanks to photography, now everyone can enjoy them.

  1. You are right! The silhouette of the Cross stole the show against such an amazing backdrop of a gorgeous sunrise. Beyond beautiful. You captured God in His creation once again... Thank you Fr Julian for sharing.....
