SkyWatch ~ Blazing Sunrise


The sky showed promise on this freezing dawn . . . note
the little swirl just above the light patch


As the light grows, gentle pastel colours develop . .


and suddenly the sky is on fire!


and that curly little dog-tail is in a sea of red.


I loved the touch of green in the sky before the magic left.



All photos enlarge as always . . .
