The colors of dawn outdo themselves again. The sky like a painting, like a sunset sea, glitters with dappled coral, magenta over blue and misty gray. The horizon bubbles with liquid orange, pale yellow, streaks of cobalt cloud breaking up the blinding color. The river gleams with pale reflections of pink and cream, the sky’s radiance transformed into a gentle warming glow. Above his cloak of shadow the mountain gazes, serenely contemplating his domain.
