Sometimes beauty is just so in your face, you have nothing to do but sit and gawk at it.
...unless you have a camera, then you take a picture!
This photo was taken on a Wednesday Wake-Up Paddle with Venture Outdoors.
I swear that these breathtaking images are set before us to remind us that it is GOOD we are here on this earth. Despite how tired I might have felt at 6:30 in the morning, despite my muscles being a little sore and feeling my weakness, despite how crappy I might have felt the day before, despite being splashed with a little bit of dirty (albeit, much-improved) Allegheny River water...there was a beautiful sky...as if an Artist painted it just for those of us who were on the water that morning.
We just need to slow down enough to enjoy it.
