Sunlit Sunday

“How sweet the morning air is! See how that one little cloud floats like a pink feather from some gigantic flamingo. Now the red rim of the sun pushes itself over the London cloud-bank. It shines on a good many folk, but on none, I dare bet, who are on a stranger errand than you and I. How small we feel with our petty ambitions and strivings in the presence of the great elemental forces of Nature!” ― Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Novels and Stories, Volume I
Love this quote written by one of my favorite authors.  Wishing all a beautiful Sunlit Sunday!!!


Thanks be to God!!


Pleases stop by and visit Karen at Sunlit Sunday.  Stop by and offer your bit of sunshine today.


  1. Wishing you a Splendid Sunday. London is rather cold today.

    God bless.

  2. Beautiful photo. I can almost feel the heat for the early sun's rays as it warms the cool shadows. Thanks for visiting and leaving your comment. Blessings.

  3. Love your sunrise over Tucson. I think the colors are brighter and the skies prettier in the desert. Great quote, too.

  4. Good Morning, Cathy

    I'm pleased you found your way to Sunlit Sunday again this winter. Your photo takes me back to about a year ago when I visited Arizona (including Tucson) for the first time. Seeing the mountains, cacti, and the big sky was wonderful. Thank you for reminding me, with your photo, of that state's beauty.

    Have a lovely week.


  5. Good morning, such wonderful cacti in your photo. Hope the sun is shining down on your area today.

  6. Really athmosheric! And so interesting to know you!

  7. The sun's sienna rays light the landscape with fiery hues, warming up the new day! Beautiful!

  8. That's a wonderful shot of the sunrise. Oh I'd like to be there right now instead of in my snowfilled landscape!

  9. Nice photo but it's not from the Emerald Isle which is disappointing. Oh yes mum and dad came from there

  10. Hello Cathy,
    It's been awhile since our posts have crossed. Hope all is well with you! Did you visit Arizona?

  11. Great quote!
    I hear it's lovely and warm in Arizona this winter. I'd love to be there!

  12. Hi Cathy,
    Wonderful quote, you picture is wonderful with the sun heating up the cactus, and one.

  13. Beautiful! And such a contrast of two entirely different kinds of beauty: the desert of Tucson and the green cliffs of Ireland!

  14. Your shot is just gorgeous! Loved seeing it.

  15. I passed through Arizona a couple of days ago. Currently chillin' in Oklahoma City. Tomorrow we head to Texas. Getting to Indiana the first week in April. Hope to see you when we are there.


Your insightful comments are appreciated and I want all to feel comfortable and welcome
