Another Beaver Valley Sunrise

We had another colourful valley sunrise on one of those frosty mornings earlier this week, as the sun rose behind the trees remarkably far to the south.  This one turned as red as any I have seen around here - not that I'm up to see many except at this time of year.  Rising below a bank of gray clouds it provided spectacular patterns for a few moments, just getting redder and redder til it suddenly disappeared.





I'm sure those of you living to the south of us occasionally complain about the cold arctic air from Canada!  Well, we had a 24 hour blast of unwelcome warm air from the U.S. yesterday.  It came with a warm front, which generated heavy rains and thunderstorms in December!  Almost all our snow is gone except in patches, though it's well below zero today and expected to stay that way.  Sooner we get some more snow the better for me.

  2. Oh you poor things with a melt + sub zero temps. Dangerous ice on the ground and the possibility of power lines coming down with the weight of icicles.
    Lovely, lovely skit you captured. I particularly like the first few shots of red and blue/purple before the sun turned everything to gold and orange.

  4. Ditto what biobabbler said - WHOA! That is truly a breathtaking sunrise, so glad you were awake and able to see and capture it! Would have been criminal to miss that one! Was it a "red sky at morning, sailor take warning" kind of day that day? Is that when your Canadian air space was infiltrated by our annoyingly invasive warm air and got all your rain and peculiar thunderstorms? :-) How very odd that we shared quite similar sunrises (though yours was more dramatic) but swapped weather this week! You can have yours back now. I love a lot about Canada, but your arctic air masses… not so much. :-)

  5. We had a similar sunset last night but it was light orange not this marvelous red color.

  8. Gorgeous.Love the colors. We are experiencing an Arctic blast of frigid air coming down upon us. It was 7 degrees F this morning. To cold for the warmer western side of this state. But I love it because then we have sunshine and blue skinstead of grey and rain. MB

  11. Wow, I love your great dramatic colorful skies and thanks for posting several of them. How about we make a deal. Canada keeps the cold air and the USA keeps the warm air?

  16. Spectacular set of images!! I tend to think of fiery skies at sunset, not sunrise. In any event, a great catch --and congratulations for getting up so early!
