Shining Down

It has been over a week since I have posted in my journal. I hope everyone is enjoying Spring! It has been a long road this year but it looks like Spring has finally arrived.

Yesterday the sky reminded me of another image I took from my cell phone that since that day, I have always wanted another opportunity. When you are dealing with the sky and the landscape - it is impossible to go back and redo, you have a window and tomorrow is a brand new canvas. . So when I noticed the rays of light shining down I decided to take a slight detour and head west on 1-70 when I was to be going east in hopes for another opportunity to capture another image similar to the one from almost a year ago in KC.

The photo below is my cell phone from June 2012. I was riding in the vehicle, it was not the easy to get a decent image but I did captured the sky as it was that evening. I did not have the option of  getting out of the car, we were on an exit ramp heading away from this area where there where no power poles for example.

I wanted to post both of these images to compare them side by side. The more I view the photo from yesterday, the more I like it - it is not the same, but yet it is unique and has elements in the landscape that the 2012 photo does not. I would be interested in in knowing what others think, which image is your favorite and why.

I thought I would also include my new IMAGE QUOTE I created where I used my photo from yesterday along with the verse "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." Ecclesiastes 3:1

When I decided to use this verse, the song  "Turn! Turn! Turn!" from the Byrds was stuck in my head. The song was adapted from the Book of Ecclesiastes in the Bible and put to music by Pete Seeger in 1959. Seeger waited until 1962 to record his own version of it, releasing the song on his 'The Bitter and the Sweet' album on Columbia Records. The song became an international hit in late 1965 when it was covered by the American folk rock band The Byrds, reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #26 on the UK Singles Chart.
