SkyWatch ~ I thought I had nothing to show . . .


and then I uploaded what was on my camera and voila!
a sunrise I got up for rather bleary-eyed . . .


shot off a few frames ( I am ashamed to say, a couple were
as bleary-ayed as I was and had to be discarded)


and just as I was ready to crawl back into my nice warm bed,
I looked up to the south of the main event and nailed these
lovely wooly clouds. I felt like plucking them from the heaves
and throwing them over my bed, they looked so like a soft pink
fleece.

  1. One can never have too many sunsets or too many cloud pix. The last ones look like they were on their way to becoming mammatus clouds--which, around here, would warn of tornado possibilities. I love your wooly analogy, even though fleecy bedcoverings are about the last thing on my mind these days.

  8. These are spectacular. I'm so glad you get out of bed in the morning for sunrises. I'd probably completely forget I'd taken the photos. A blanket like that last image would be snuggly.

  10. Hi there - the first two are great, but I really like the last one - a bit more abstract!

    Wonderful.

    Glad you liked the Dave Brubeck :O) My daughter played alto in h.s. and one of my fondest memories was sitting on the front porch while she practiced with an open window, Rhapsody in Blue. sigh
