It's been the month of watching sunrises. The sun hasn't been rising until nearly 8 a.m., so I'm usually actually up to see it, though that's going to end Sunday night with Daylight Savings Time arriving.
Earlier this week I told myself that there might be a good sunrise, but then I ignored it while I was sipping coffee and reading. I turned around to see this through the window.
I grabbed my camera and started getting a few shots. It was mostly a dark gray sky, but on the horizon where the sun would eventually appear, it was brilliant red.
Soon the red began spreading up onto the higher clouds.
It just got brighter and brighter.
Can't recall a sunrise this bright.
But gradually it faded away until the sky was all gray again.
And finally the sun itself came up, just cracking the horizon before it disappeared under the bank of clouds. Forty-five fleeting minutes of ethereal beauty.
We have also had some stunning sunrises lately. But this one of yours takes the cake! :-)ReplyDelete

What absolutely amazing pictures!ReplyDelete
My bone tree is new. I brought some to the house from Dad's unfortunate lightning strike from years ago. Five of his best cattle and the bull were dead. He left them for the wild animals to feed on since it was far from the house. The ones I brought were going to be used somehow in creating my dragon but Bonnie insisted on getting each one at every opportunity. I had to tie them out of her reach and the tree was born.
I do try to keep my more extreme ideals within my family. They are used to me. I do have the pelvic bone of a cow as a guard at my front gate. I have painted it to look like a face. Might be the very thing that's keeping thieves away!!!
Have a very blessed weekend and thank you.
The sunrises have been stunning here this month too. I'm glad you captured the fleeting moments of this one. Enjoy the weekend.ReplyDelete
