The Lighted Day

Cold mornings, sometimes drizzly and sometimes with fog, keep me hunkered in my living room with hot coffee.  Yesterday I glanced out the kitchen window to see a brilliant sunrise greeting me over the tree tops.  I put on slippers, and while still in pajamas and robe, grabbing my new point and shoot Canon camera (Christmas gift) which replaced my 6-year-old one with the scratched lens, and I started memorializing the event. 


That early morning light began to grow even more lovely as I leaned across the deck railing with my arms held high.


Truly this is Mother Earth's reminder that the days are now going to grow longer.


What was even more amazing was the view behind me where the sun began to spill its red across the river facing the west.  This is very unusual and it did not last long.

Wow.. Nature sure gifted you with a beauty. And you, in turn, did likewise for us. Thank you for that. Keep on enjoying that new camera.

These are BREATH-TAKING---would have loved to have been there beside you watching this unfold.

Nicely done. It's a good think you were up and looked outside.

It's nice when winter gives us something beyond steel gray from sunrise to sunset!

Sorry, posted under the wrong gmail account before.

Anyway, I love Canon cameras. What model did you get?

Also...I remember the old saying "Red sky in the morning, sailors/hunters take warning".

Lovely.
