Daffodils and jonquils have passed the relay baton to fruit trees and ground cover. Pear, plum, and peach trees are blossoming, along with the red buds. Patches of white, yellow, and purple flowers of the wild ground cover catch the dew in a foggy morning. New young cones of the pines reflect the yellow sun rays. Bees are buzzing high and low. So is the lawn mower. Welcome, spring!

I’ve been observing and preserving the beauty of East Texas sky since I moved here, in Edgewood, in 2006. In 2012, I self-published my photography book, On the Edge of the Piney Woods, compiling the photographs of ever-changing Texas sky and the land’s natural beauty in four seasons. The sky and the land don’t stop amaze me with their ever-changing beauty and surprises, so I keep taking photographs of the same subjects. Like these views of one fiery sunrise in early winter in December 2013. The ray of golden sunlight caught my eyes through the kitchen window, as always, notifying me that a glorious scene was going to play out there in a few seconds. Without delay, I grabbed my camera and got out there in a crisp morning to capture it.
