Sky on Fire is what we're calling our latest photo and music essay. It features dozens of stunning sunrise and sunset images contributed by our Carolina Conversations bloggers. You emailed me pictures from as far away as Thailand and Ontario.

There were so many beautiful photographs I had to use the longest song on my new album to cover them all. Coinleach Glas an Fhomhair, an ancient Celtic melody, runs more than six minutes.

I am going to let you decide who wins the Best Photograph contest. Pick your favorite image on this slideshow by posting the time that it runs in the comment section. We will declare a winner on Friday. That person will receive a signed copy of my new CD Simple Beauty.

I would like to get your reaction to Sky on Fire. I felt so relaxed after viewing the images. I could feel my blood pressure going down and a sweet sense of peace enveloped me. How about you?
