SkyWatch ~ 33 A golden Sunrise

A touch of promise in the morning sky...



blue glory like a welling sea with growing light below



a stream of gold between two deep, dark banks



exploding like shrapnel, molten gold across the sky.

  44. I must move to Australia. It's only an "al" between us :)
    GLORIOUS, Arija! Glorious! All your photos are great, but those are overwhelming!
    (I live in a place where I can hear the birds chant at dusk but I have no view at all of the sky or a landscape around, only a narrow stree. In the middle of the town - wonderful, but just the opposite of what you show in your photos).
    Happy week, Arija, great hugs, Maria
