San Diego Harbor Sunrise
Photograph - Digital Photo, Enhanced, Digital Artwork
A magnificent sunrise greets a new day at America's Cup Harbor in San Diego, California.
I took this photo during an early January morning walk a few blocks from where I was staying to attend a friend's wedding.
A painterly effect has been added to my photo for this digital artwork.
"This is the day which the LORD has made;
Let’s rejoice and be glad in it."
~ Psalm 118:24

Embedded in the top right-hand corner is the Hebrew acronym for "B'ezras Hashem" [ב ס " ד] meaning "with God's help". It is a reminder to me as an artist and photographer of my dependence on the Almighty, the Originator of all creativity. This is a similar acknowledgement used by great artists like Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel who signed their work with the Latin phrase, "Soli Deo gloria" which means, "To God alone be the glory".
