Skywatch - Around the Track

Yesterday morning I walked around the track.
I didn't know if there would be a colorful sunrise,
but I had my camera just in case.

Once the sunrise colors appeared, they were constantly changing.

orange clouds

purple clouds

yellow clouds

And, two hawks were calling back and forth across the track.

pink clouds

Briefly, the mountaintop glowed,

and both old and new leaves lit up.

Light and shadows graced the ridge,
for just a moment before the clouds turned gray.

To see more skies from around the world, check out Skywatch Friday.

What a beautiful morning your captured and such a nice track. I had wanted to try running again but found the track to be either muddy or in use by the students. That is one thing I miss about the Gorge, I had a great place to run.

Awesome. I am usually driving during sunrise so I don't appreciate it that much. That's why most of my pictures are of sunsets.

Regina said...

Amazing how in the space of a shot time the sky can go through so many colors. I love to watch the sunset for just this reason.
