A dark cloud delayed the sunrise this morning, but also helped make “divine light”, as this illusion of diverging sunbeams is sometimes called (crepuscular rays). In this image, a large bright “divine fan” is captured as it radiates out from behind the dark cloud, creating such a contrast!

Quote of the Day: “If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning: just as, if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never know it was dark. Dark would be without meaning.” ~ C.S. Lewis
