More morning magic

My bedroom window faces south, so when I wake up in the early morning, it's often still dark outside.  However, the front porch faces east and I know the sky will look completely different as soon as I get out of bed and go there.

This is the view I saw this morning at around 6:15 as I opened the porch door and stepping outside.

The sky was amazing.  The entire eastern section was filled with the most stunning colors.  Lately, I've been waking up around 6 a.m. to go out for a morning row before the sun rises and while the lake is still calm.  Every morning the sky is different.  Sometimes, it's cloudy. Sometimes it's clear.  But always it's filled with the most vivid colors.

Below are some pictures from the past week. Most were taken on the shore just before I launched the boat.  Although occasionally, the sky (which changes colors moment-by-moment) was so stunning, I had to put the oars down to pick up the camera and capture another image of the morning magic.

  1. Those morning views would spur me out of the bed each day before dawn! I wouldn't want to miss a moment. Amazing!

    1. Any yet I still struggle with the whole get-up-and-get-outside part. But then once I actually step out the door and see the sky, I'm so glad I made myself do it. Not to mention how good it feels to be rowing across still water at the break of dawn, listening to all the bird songs, watching the sky change colors as the sun rises...
