SkyWatch *22 Eyre Peninsula Sunrise

Please click on photos to enlarge for best effect.



The sun is thinking of leaving its warm, warm bed



Just opening one eye to peek at the mangroves



nothing like getting your head above the water!



Here she is, up at last and with a little mangrove
in her sights. All shots taken from the Cowell caravan
park on the Eyre Peninsula.

Now, click on the Logo and go fly the sky!

Thank you SkyWatch Team for all your work to
co-ordinate this meme.

  12. I have never been over to the Eyre peninsula although I have had projects in Cowell. The photographs look tropical with the shape of the trees and the light.

  13. What a gorgeous sunrise. I never seem to get photos of the sunrise... I'm usually in bed (or too busy attempting to bribe my eyes to open with a cup of coffee). I love the reflections of the sun over the water!

  23. It's amazing to me how fast the sun -- or moon -- seems to move when it's that near the horizon. I know it doesn't go any faster, but when it's on the horizon like that you have a frame of reference. And you can actually watch it move.

    Great series!
