SkyWatch *12 Sunrise

Dawn, promising skies...shot this morning, for
a better view please click on photo to enlarge.



15 degrees to te left, the scene is gently aglow
with morning light and horse doth safely graze



Back to the main event an the scene has
dramatically changed to more subtle hues



surprisingly, as the sun emerges, the
clouds darken



The sun is up and smeone muzzles in on the action!
Never share a scene with animals or children,
they invarably steal it.



My thanks to the SkyWatch team for the great
task they perform to give us this wonderful
opportunity to share the wonders that we see.

    nfortunately not my horse but my granddaughter's. Poppy just happened to be grazing above my garden and since we are good friends was nuzzling my face, and hands, and feet and generally taking an interest in what I was up to.

    Poppy materialized as I was shooting. 'twas not my intention but hers.

  64. Well I sure loved that series and the horse was so amazing in the last shot...it is so humbling to think of all of us in this sky club standing in our yards or parks gazing at the sky at whatever hour and snapping our photos for each other. I really like it.

    ReplyDelete
