Photo of the Week: Sunrise over the Wye

Image of an orange sunrise over the Wye River.

This was [an early winter] sunrise over the Wye River. This time of year it is so beautiful and peaceful on the water. It's not hard getting up early when you can experience a beautiful sunrise along with the peacefulness of the river and the sounds of wildlife just waking up. I treasure and am thankful for every moment like this.
