Another beautiful sunrise (or two)

Like Sara says, "If you've got to sound like a broken record, I guess this is the one you want." Yesterday morning, I shot the sunrise from down at the barn while doing chores (with my old camera, the one with dust in the lens).

Rick and Brian left early for a call, so I went for a walk before work. I thought the sky then was still striking, even after sunrise.
That square shape on the right is a new house being built by a couple from Alaska. They work six weeks on as nurses there, and six weeks "off" on their five acres here. The house has a lot of unique features and construction techniques, and is supposedly very "green;" recently a bank of solar panels went north of the house. Here is a photo of it looking up the hill rather than down:

Then last night Lance and I ushered out the last of the daylight on a ride about the hill. I felt blessed by the beautiful sky bookends of my day.

Little did I know how they would pale in comparison to this morning's sunrise!
(Straight out of camera.)

It does me good to look at these images again tonight. It has been a long, hard day for this homeschooling mother.

That's it for now at . . .

We always say "Red sky at night, sailor's delight, red sky at morning, sailor take warning" Hope it didn't bring on the rain! T.

You have the most beautiful skies to shoot. What a blessing. That house is very interesting. Would love to take a tour!

Miss you, Pamela dear!

Yes, it was raining within 90 minutes of that second sunrise and drizzled on and off all day, but I was fine with that. I had indoor work to do and we still need more.

Someday I'm going to ask for a tour, Leigh. Other neighbors say the couple is most willing to do that.

Love those sunrise pictures!! Beautiful.

I'd love to take a tour of that new "green" house.
