NOTE: Although Cat Stevens made the Morning Has Broken lyrics famous in his 1971 song, the lyrics were originally written in 1931 as a Christian hymn by Eleanor Farjeon.

For this post I’ve included a number of images from previous posts as well as several that are included for the first time. With thanks to Cheri for her lovely challenge, I offer you all my best wishes for a week filled with the all that mornings have to offer.

  1. These photos are absolutely stunning. Thank you for sharing. I have just started a poetry channel here on WordPress in case you have time to have a look which includes several tributes to Lenny. Have a good day, Sam 🙂

  2. Like you said in the last post, photographs as works of art evoke an emotional response. These images do just that. The tree shot has been a personal favourite since the first time you posted it.

    • Thanks Steve – Sadly it’s on a very famous beach here in SC that is fast-eroding. I’d estimate it will be completely under water within a few years. It’s been a photographer’s favorite forever. I timed my visit to be there when high tide occurred at sunrise and was blessed with a glorious morning. >

  3. What a lovely post!
    A fantastic collection of super shots together with the beautiful words from “Morning has broken…..)
    I’m listening to Cat Stevens song now (Ihad to 😉 )

  4. A great song ~ overshadowed by your incredible images, they match the lyrics so well. The contrast between “Praise for the Morning” and “Blackbird Has Spoken” are perfectly placed…by two favorite shots, from a sea of many.

    • Many thanks Randall. Praise for the Morning has been a very successful shot. It garnered a quarter-page color slot in a Charleston area magazine’s annual feature of favorite places. Looked great on print IMHO 😄😄.

  7. I like how you integrated the words of the song with very appropriate images. Not only very appropriate, but very beautiful. Nicely done, Tina
