Skywatch Friday

After a delightful dinner and catching up with our good friends at the lake, we enjoyed a restful evening in the quiet of our house. No sirens, no dogs barking, no traffic noise...just peace and quiet. And stars. Lots and lots of stars. The sky was filled with white confetti scattered atop a deep black velvet. I slept deeply, rising naturally before the dawn. Slipping outside I hoped for a pretty sunrise.

I needn't have worried.

My neighbor's dock is the perfect place upon which to view sunrises. They graciously allow me to use it for photographing sunrises.

Oil lamps right outta Myst.

Sunrise reflection on the water.

Looking southeast down the channel.

Another neighbor's day dock perfectly silhouetted.

The sun makes its appearance, peeking over the hill as I peek through trees on the bank.

As the sun rose the world turned silver. What a lovely morning.

Check out skies from across the world at Skywatch Friday. That's where I'm going next, after I get a cup of coffee.

* for the record, I did choose a thumbnail but it didn't post! Must not clicked hard enough - LOL!

Your sunrise shots are stunning! I recognize the giraffe head tree leading the pack. I love the shot with the sun framed by a silhouette of branches. Beautiful work!

I'm sure glad you're willing to get up in the morning for a colorful sunrise like this. The lake looks so gorgeous reflecting the sky. I can certainly understand why you like to BE there. Excellent shots. Thanks to the neighbors for the nice views.

Beautiful sunrise and beginning to your day. I love the lantern shot. Your Giraffe tree spirit is my favorite. Lovely post!
