Skywatch Friday........

I took these photos on Monday December, 29th. The sun was rising and it was such a brilliant sunrise. (If you click on the third one, you will see a plane)

Love it esp. the top one as it looks like a black paper cut out.

Louise said...

Fantastic sunrise!
A beautiful sight and especially beautiful because I have so seldom seen the sunrise for several weeks now, high fog makes for very gray days.

I hope you are at least beginning to feel better, good luck!

There is much warmth and peacefulness in your sunrise photos. The plane is rising as the sun is rising taking us to new horizons.

I kept looking for the plane and finally realized I had to scroll over. I thought I was losing my mind (again!). Very nice series, it moves very quickly towards the end, doesn't it. Happy New Year!

Beautiful colors, Gill. You did a great job with the entire sequence.

Really a great sunrise, Gil! Lovely photos!
We had some glazed frost on the trees and meadows, but no snow, some hazy clouds in the blue winter sky :)
Happy SWF and New Year to you!

Faery said...

Beautiful, I love the lamppost, the colors and the sun.He he I found the plane too.

Deborah Godin said...

Very dramatic! I love how the rising kind of distorts the disc and then as it gets a bit hit - perfectly round!

Gorgeous photos!!
You asked about Sew Sisters? Just go prepared to have a great time. It's a super store -- I love going there! If our car wasn't going into the shop on Monday for who knows how long, I'd be on my way up there too!

Ruth said...

I too like the lamp post silhouettes. Lovely sunrises.

Lilli & Nevada said...

Lovely photos

What beautiful shots! Happy New Year!

Mojo said...

Isn't it amazing how much faster the sun seems to move when it's on the horizon like that? Doesn't matter if it's rising or setting, with the horizon there for reference, you can literally watch it go!

Lovely series. But please do be careful about looking through the lens straight on into the sun like that. A photographer's eyes are his or her most valued asset and must be protected at any cost!

Max-e said...

Nice series of SWF pictures. Hope you get well soon and that you have a great New Year.

gel said...

Stunning, rich photos. The silhouetted lamppost highlights this.

Kay said...

Lovely photos, great skywatch. I couldn't find the plane at first, but of course as soon as I knew where it was it was obvious.

SandyCarlson said...

These are wonderful. I enjoyed these and I enjoyed your post on Xmas cards!

John said...

Great set of photos.

Happy New Year!

Tarolino said...

Excellent captures of a special sunrise. Funny how the sky actually seems to get darker as the sun gets higher up. I guess it's the clouds also rising up at the same time. Love the last image best.
Happy new sky watching year.

Strawberry Jam Anne said...

Wonderful shots Gill - thanks too for mentioning the plane.
