Enveloped in Morning Light

Each day is a little life: every waking and rising a little birth,
every fresh morning a little youth, every going to rest and sleep a little death.

~ Arthur Schopenhauer

 

Kumaon region in Uttarakhand, India is famous for its beautiful hilly terrain enveloped in lush green plantation. But that’s during the day. If you rise early you may find the greenery enveloped in morning mist. The veil of fog thickens in chilly wind and falls gently down the valley. As the morning grows older the sun comes out from behind the lofty peaks of the Himalayas and envelops the earth with warmth and light.

Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Early Bird

Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark. ~ Rabindranath Tagore

It was the morning we were to set out for Kausani from Nainital. So I woke up early at 5:30 that morning and went outside to observe the beauty and absorb the silence of dawn at Nainital. It has been my earliest morning capture so far. 🙂

The following shot was taken at Kausani at around 6:45 in the morning. I stood on the terrace for an hour waiting for the sun god to show up. But he was determined to hide behind the clouds that morning. The mountains and the Queen’s Meadow yonder were covered with a thick blanket of mist and the entire valley looked bluish in the pale morning light.
