Capemars

The photo above was taken by my better half from our deck on Monday. He woke early to a strange red light infusing our little bedroom. Stumbling to the window, this is what he saw. I know I'm a Cape Light bore, but one reason I come here and won't leave is because I know of few other places that simply force you to face the full beauty of God's creation the way this place does. Yes, many of you would see it simply as the universe in all its grandeur at 5 am. And I'm sure you would appreciate this as much as I do.

But for me the point is always, simply awe.
