I used Picmonkey to add some color saturation to this photo, to enhance the purple of the mountains just a bit. This is the lovely view from our bedroom window, looking west as the sun is just rising.
A bit of trivia about the patriotic song “America the Beautiful”. Did you know the lyrics were originally written as a poem, by Katharine Lee Bates, in 1895? The tune was originally written as a hymn by Samuel A. Ward in 1892. The two were put together in 1910 to make this song.
The #52Snapshots challenge does not have to be about pets, but I like to at least include something pet related, so I’m adding this photo of Luke in silhouette with the same view behind him. I darkened this photo to make the silhouette, and again added some color saturation to enhance the purple of the mountains.
