I found an image that may fit the theme of New Beginnings. As I was walking by flashlight in the predawn hours to get to Landscape Arch I had to stop along the path to shoot the first light of the day.
New Beginnings and a Happy New Year to all of my new and not so new friends at Perfectly Captured. I hope everyone has a safe and exciting 2011!

An immediate sense of anticipation is evoked with the first light highlighting the rock formations of Arches National Park. The darkened sky in the upper portion of the image seems to enhance the colors of the first light at the bottom of the picture.

I wish I had taken that!
That little star/planet in the upper left corner balances the entire dramatic scene. This is beautiful.

I am sorry I missed this at the time Gary. A superb image for the theme of that week, strong silhouettes and lovely layers of colour,
