Today I thought I would share some pictures from our early morning sun chasing last week. For those of you who don't know, October is baby loss awareness month and I am taking part in a photography project called Capture Your Grief. Basically it's a 31 day photo challenge and each day there is a new subject to cover. For more information on it, click here.
For the first day of this project, I was supposed to take a picture of the sunrise. I participated last year as well but didn't get a sunrise picture since I was stuck in bed healing after my D&C. So I was determined to do better this year and actually go out looking for the sun.
So last Wednesday morning, Dan and I woke up bright and early,
There was no way that we were going to see any sort of sunrise. I kept hoping that the clouds would part and the sun would peep out, but no such luck.
I made the most of the circumstances though and instead of watching the sky turn incredible colours, I soaked in the stillness, breathed in the fresh morning air and listened to the grass and vines blow in the wind.
It was perfect in its own way.
Dan stayed in the car while Mia and I waited for daylight. He said it was too cold out, but I think he missed a beautiful moment. I did appreciate him coming with me though, it was nice to have the company on the drive and be able to look back and see him smiling at me from behind the glass.
Despite the lack of beautiful, colourful skies, the sun still rose and I'm happy that I got to experience it. When was the last time you saw the sunrise?
