Morning Light

I liked the earliest stripes of light before the sun actually came up.


You can see how the stripe persisted behind the apple tree on the right, but as the sun rose that bank of clouds lit up.


In a couple more minutes I realized it was going to be one of those sunrises that lights up everything to the west with interesting colors. First it turned the aspen trees pink.

This was the whole scene out back. Yet another mood of my backyard.

Just before the effect faded, it made the two mulberry trees glow. This is the same effect that turned them all pink a few years ago (link at bottom- that picture is stunning). However, this time, it made them all orange.

Back to work in a couple of hours. I'm really tired tonight, so I hope things keep moving. If I can't think about it, it's not too bad.

What a beautiful way to start your day.

That's pretty good. I like sunrise pictures, and I like sunrises. I don't get to see many good sunrises here because my house is nestled right on the western edge of the Loess Hills. The hills effectively block a proper sunrise view. I usually don't go out very far that early, but it would just take a short drive over the hills.
