Down to the River to Pray

Looking East into the sun

Manatee River @ 8:04 AM Saturday morning. I took the long way home and stopped to stare and snap after I filled up my Kia with gas..  BTW long way home one mile..

Looking west on same river same time



Down to the River to pray by Alison Kraus is a favorite of mine. While listening to her, I saw this amazing young man who sings all the parts by himself....

Your river pictures paired with this song are perfect! And Sunday is a perfect day for them. I LOVE what you did with the last two photos! I do not need to listen to the Alison Krauss song because it is one of my favorites and I know it inside out! We love her and have some of her C.D.'s. Her voice is so distinctive. This guy I have not seen before, so it makes a great pair of videos!

Since I love Alison Kraus, I was a bit reluctant to watch this video. Then, WOW!
This is a perfect accompaniment to your photos!

PS - I suspect Blogland is behaving badly again. This only showed up on my timeline 40 minutes ago, but I saw on FB your shared the link much earlier. SMDH!

I enjoyed your beautiful river photos and the song. I love to walk by the Ohio River Falls.

Your original is my fav. I guess I see things with such difficulty that I stick to what feels most real to me?

Beautiful pictures and I really enjoyed the video, he did very well on the song. Alison Kraus is one of my favorite singers. Now I want to see the movie "Oh, Brother Where Art Though" again after hearing this song. lol I loved all the music in the movie and the move. Thanks, for sharing the pictures and song. Hugs
