Sunrise Finale



This turned out to be one of the more colorful sunrises I observed this month. I had been watching and taking pictures of it for about a half hour and thought it was done. The sky colors were pleasant, but not very intense. I went back in the house, and when I peeked out the window, the sky looked fiery! So, I hurried out to the street again and snapped these three photos.

Thanks to the Skywatch team: Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy, Louise and Sylvia. To view other sky posts or to participate, visit Skywatch Friday.

Update: I posted a reflection of this sunrise here.

When you thought the peek is enough, the peak is yet to come.

It is very beautiful.

Most people enjoy the beauty of sunset, but fail to follow the sunrise. You are the few.
