Another Perfect Sunrise

“Sunrise looks spectacular in the nature; sunrise looks spectacular in the photos; sunrise looks spectacular in our dreams; sunrise looks spectacular in the paintings, because it really is spectacular.”
Mehmet Murat ildan

 

“It was not so much a modification of the darkness, as a sigh of relief, a slight relaxing of tension, so that one felt, rather than saw, that the night had suddenly lost a shade of its density… 
― Hope Mirrlees

These pictures were taken with my cell phone this morning as I walked from the parking lot into the building. The cool thing about them is if you look at the first picture, you can see several shades of blue and then a strip of an almost cotton candy color. As I stood there and turned 90 degrees to my left, the entire sky was the color you see in the last two pictures. Absolutely amazing! What an outstanding way for a day to start.

A Warm Sunrise

“This grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.”

-John Muir
I took these pictures on my walk in from the parking lot today at work. Another beautifully warm day for the month of February.

Another Sunrise

As you know, I love a good sunrise! So even though I have posted sunrises before, I couldn’t resist taking these pictures this morning on my way to pick up some bagels for breakfast. Of course I left my camera at home so I had to take these with my cell phone.

Good morning 2017!!!

“New Year’s Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change.”

-Sarah Ban Breathnach
