Sunrise Under a Blanket

Yesterday morning as the kids and I headed to school, I reminded them of the upcoming time change. Next week, we'll be leaving for school after the sun has already risen and although we'll get to sleep later, we will not get to enjoy the beautiful sunrises that we so often see as we travel to school.

Yesterday morning's was absolutely fabulous. The clouds were like a blanket over the sky, but broke just before the horizon so that we could see the sun coming up over the treetops.
All of these photos were uploaded exactly as they came off the camera. No tweaking, no "adjusting" of the colors. The sky was just that beautiful!!!

In one shot it looks sooooo red...

And the same photo in the very next shot turned out this yellow....

And about 10 minutes further down the road, I pulled over again to get a shot as the sun disappeared up into the blanket of clouds. The beauty of the sunrises will be missed when the time changes this weekend.

"And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day."

~Genesis 1:3-5

You have captured some great pics of my favorite time of day. I am often out running as the sun come over the horizon and the variety of colors you see is a short time is breath taking. I am in total agreement that it is one more instance of God's common grace.
