Maybe I’m still sleepy; I don’t see the crack.
The crack refers to the slim gap on the horizon below a cloud bank allowing the nice warm light from the rising sun to illuminate my backyard.
Lovely, so soft and painterly. Beautiful light.

Thanks, Lemony. The light was delightful albeit short in duration.
The morning light often creates as in your picture a romantic mood, Steve.
Thanks, Peter. It gave both me and Bentley a warm feeling and maybe his licks could be considered romantic. 😉

Our world is waking up, hurrah!
My favorite time of day, Eliza, and why I am happy to rise before the sun. ☀️
That’s so interesting, Steve. The colors suggest an autumn scene. I think the little cabin would be a wonderful place to write.
People are surprised by the colors we can see in spring. Here’s an example.
You’d have to move all our garden tools. 🙂 It’s our shed in the backyard. 🙂
Fantastic colors in those other photos, Steve. And I envy you your garden shed. I would happily move the tools. 🙂
We will actually move the tools soon as the floor needs painting. If you hurry and get here while we’re doing it you might be able to set it up as a studio. 🙂 I am in the process of painting the outside.
It sounds like a wonderful she shed, Steve. 🙂
It’s a warm and inviting photo of an equally inviting place. Your comments about painting and such brought this to mind, from Walden:
““There is some of the same fitness in a man’s building his own house that there is in a bird’s building its own nest. Who knows but if men constructed their dwellings with their own hands, and provided food for themselves and families simply and honestly enough, the poetic faculty would be universally developed, as birds universally sing when they are so engaged? But alas! we do like cowbirds and cuckoos, which lay their eggs in nests which other birds have built, and
cheer no traveller with their chattering and unmusical notes. Shall we forever resign the pleasure of construction to the carpenter?”
We are very happy with our property and the yard. Mary Beth has several gardens which I helped create but she does the bulk of the planting and weeding. I am slowly adding native plants to the wooded area behind the shed.
Thoreau! Of course he did build his own home albeit a temporary one. I’ve participated in home building but have not really built one myself and we inherited the shed when we bought this place so not even that. I think there is a lot to be said for building one’s own shelter and were I younger I would consider that as a starting over point in life. I have made some alterations to the inside of our house, built additional kitchen cabinets and some other things. And, yes, I did resign construction of our addition to a carpenter. 🙂
What a beautiful sight!!
Thanks, Carol! It’s not often I get to shoot something like this right out of my back door.
Beautiful light and colors. Sometimes spring almost looks like fall. The little shed provides a nice focal point.
I’ve a few spring images that are much more colorful in that way than is expected. Here’s a link to one example that I shared in a comment above.
Ahh, so sweet, those friendly colors and the little building. And reading the comments I see it’s your backyard – wow, lucky you!!
It is a nice yard but made to look a bit more special by the light hitting the trees. We are lucky to have this almost acre though and Mary Beth has several nice gardens.
Sounds really nice. 🙂
