Skywatch Friday
September 23rd, 2011

It is just after 6 a.m.   I am sitting at the table, making little lists for the day when out of the corner of my eye \i see through the slats of the vertical blind that the world is awash with pink light.

I pick up the keys to the back gate and am out the door in a flash, camera in hand.  I have determined that the parkland behind us is the best place to take pictures without criss-crossed wires, and so it is!  Lovely sunrise.


For more lovely skies from around the world visit here at Skywatch Friday with gratitude to the people who maintain this popular meme.
