Wild Weekly’s Photo Contest – New Beginnings

I’m participating in the online adventure travel and photography magazine LetsBeWild.com’s Wild Weekly Photo Challenge for bloggers.  This week’s Challenge is: New Beginnings!

 

After looking at sunrises which signify the beginning of a new day, such as here at Monument ValleyRW_0439

or this beautiful day in the Gulf of Mexico:

Then there was this day in Galveston, Texas, which was the ending of such an awesome vacation.

Then I realized that there’s more to New Beginnings than just a new day.  It means new life from old, such as this pine tree growing from an old stump.

Of course, it also means growing seeds for the coming harvest, like this pine tree growing new pine cones.

But then, I realized that these are all trivial, when it comes to us starting a new way of life.  I had some friends get married this past fall (you know who your are! Congratulations again!).  This is the best and greatest New Beginning, and having a child is the close second.

They are now expecting their first child, and I wish them the best!  I would like to show you the wedding rings after their beautiful wedding ceremony on the front lawn of Zion Lodge in Zion National Park.
