#227 Darkest part of the night

The darkest part of the night... is shortly before the sun comes out...

Twilight photographers know this because they are often awake to witness the night turn into day. But how often do we get the chance to portray this snippet of wisdom in our photographs? When the going gets rough, just when you thought things are going from bad to worst, dark clouds can suddenly dissipate, the heavens can suddenly open up, and the seemingly elusive light of hope can appear. Such was the scene at dawn that morning, portraying a simple message of hope... in an otherwise complex story called life. Enjoy.

(Pixel-peepers: When crepuscular light streamed down from the heavens, I understood the parallels. But how to tell its story? It helped that the dull color of dawn forced me to think in shades of black & white. A progression of underexposed images later, one allowed the faint rays to stand out from against a dark and ominous sky. And in a nutshell, that's how an idea becomes a photograph.)

For those who've inquired about buying prints of my postcards, you may purchase them directly from master printmaker Arnel Murillo (, one of the country's foremost fine-art printmakers.  Arnel uses archival inks and museum-grade paper to ensure his prints will not fade. You will not be disappointed. (All my images are provided gratis to help showcase the beauty of our country.
