The Gallery – emotion

This photo is full of emotions, there is Bracken thrilled at being free to roam and dive in streams. Free to sniff all the amazing smells and chase everything that moves. Then there is my emotion; contentment, drinking in the early morning sun, the peace and quiet that precedes another busy day. That perfect time before the hustle and bustle starts and we go about our daily activities, just another day of the week.

We both love this time but for different reasons. It may be tough getting out of bed at 5.45am everyday but on mornings like this it’s worth every second.

This is my entry for this weeks Gallery, do pop over and see the rest of the entries.


  1. Looks so serene – kind of like you own it all by yourselves for a little bit.

  7. Great photo. I’m not sure I could get up that early to go for a run though. Maybe I need to get a dog!

  8. That must feel so special, especially in the summer – a feeling of ‘owning’ the day when all is so quite – just you, Bracken and the birds waking with the dawn 🙂
