SkyWatch ~ Hot Summer Sunrise

Pale, insignificant colour in the sky as the light grows. Will it
amount to anything? No-one knows...

















I wait in hope as the colours deepen, the morning is already hot.

















Then as the sun peeps over the horizon, its full force hits the clouds



In a majestic blaze of glory!

  3. We could do with some of your heat over here at the moment - it's the coldest winter for 30 years or more, where I live. Your picture gave me a warm glow, at least!

  14. What lovely warm colours!

    Oh, a warm summer's day would be such a dream right now! Forecast is for almost two feet of snow by the weekend.

  16. You had a wonderful morning for skywatching.
    I think we skywatchers often watch, wondering if we will get a treat or a dud, should we wander to get a better view of the sky or will it be a waste of time.

  19. There is beauty even in the adversity of the weather.

    We have plentiful mellow weather down here in Sydney. Maybe you should come for a respite. Summer is generally suffocating in our southern skies.

    Floods in some areas and bushfires in other states.

    Happy New Year to you Ma'am Arija. I have been thinking of you.

    Here is mine.

  33. Beautiful photos Arija. I can feel the heat emminating from them. We get the sun but there is no heat attached to it right now. I love your previous post with all the critters...I love geckos or salamanders as we call them here.
