A Shaft of Light

A single shaft of light falls between the ridges out near Gurley, Alabama.  

It was a strange morning.  There was a glow in the sky an hour before sunrise.  Very unusual.  Especially in that it was so overcast.  It let in just a little bit of color before sunrise.  Then the Sun actually broke through the gap you see on the horizon for a couple of minutes.  I really should have gotten a better picture then but  I didn't like the composition.  The light was golden and glorious. And then it was gone, with the Sun sending little shafts of light down into the valley for the next half hour.

It's amazing how much you see in one morning. If you look. I bet no one else saw the fawn laying just 15 feet off of the road, quiet as a mouse, waiting for Mom to come back and get her.
