For the Lord God is a sun and shield: The Lord will give grace and glory:
Psalms 84: 11

On this day, September 9-11,
May the angel's trumpets sound...
O'er earth unto the heavens...
For freedom glory bound.

Oh let it forever ring...
To give honor to the king,
And all the heroes who have died.
Upon the throne of God with pride
is a loving tribute to twin towers,
From the nature of the flowers.
Poetry by me, AJP

This morning I got practice in back lighting and I am very happy the angel's trumpets were not wiped out by the sun's rays today as they were yesterday for this particular experiment.... I used myself purposely as a block to shield the flowers...

    Thank you Donald...Yes, I love early morning light...This morning I slept in until
    7:00 but I still got out there in plenty of time to work with the light and it is fun!

    Fabulous shot, Andrea!! I believe you'll enjoy the morning shots more and more as we are now beginning to see signs of autumn and those wonderful colored leaves and foliage!!! (Is your hubbie getting up earlier now too?) ;)

    Thank you everyone for your comments...Patty, my hubby is still sleeping when I get up and I am creeping around in the dark quietly so I don't disturb him:) Yes, as the colors start changing outside it will be fun to see the leaves glowing in the sun...The Morning Glory vine is still not blooming which is very odd for it to
    be this late and I hope to see flowers on it before my series ends on the 18th.
