Rose’s Tears of Joy


Daybreak – a beautiful Pause in between the dark slumber of eve and the hustle of phones, horns,  meetings and deadlines…… of the new day.


Daybreak – you feel more alive at daybreak,  senses are engaged; there’s less competition fighting for your attention.

Sunsets are gorgeous;  but, tired from the day’s work and with all the evening’s  bustle of noises that compete to muffle out the full experience, it seems Less filling than daybreak.

Stillness at Daybreak

Daybreak  – a time and place I go to  catch a break.  In the stillness  and  the silent joy.


Daybreak  –   Splendour of the dawn…… what a lovely phrase.

Zareth Shahar, means  “Splendour of the Dawn.”  There is an actual place named,  Zareth Shahar. It’s an ancient city located along the eastern shores of the Dead Sea, but little remains of the town except a few stone ruins scattered about.

My Heart, In Serenity


All photos were taken very early, this morning peeking over into the neighbour’s rose garden with my Canon Rebel 600D using Canon macro lens 100mm f2.8L

I especially liked the soft focus photo My Heart, In Serenity.  It seemed to resonate the most with me on how and what I wanted to convey in this post.

(A big thank you to my followers, readers, sharers, likers!   I’m getting closer to my 12 month goal for followers,… nearly there!!     Thank You.)



And enjoy the splendour of dawn found At Daybreak.
