Sky Watch Friday # 25

Sky Watch Friday has on it's own site. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were 232 people last week with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post. The numbers may be down some but it was Christmas time.

This was last Tuesday morning with a Sunrise that had great colors. I included four shots for your enjoyment. Can you see the lakes in the foreground showing the reflection of the Sunrise?
The Sun hid a little more in this capture.
It then seemed to move back to a full view.
I do hope this is a wish for a great New Year in 2009.
I wish the very best to every visitor to my sight. I do hope any changes we make hear in America can bring renewed prosperity throughout the world. Try to visit and comment on some of the beautiful offerings throughout the world.

A Death In The Blogger World

A blogger friend lost her husband suddenly last Sunday night. I thought it would be nice to go and leave a message for her on her blog...You may know her as 'mommanator' at grannies ramblings

Lovely sunrises and you did an outstanding job on those critters and insects. I have never seen a black squirrel before. We don't have those kind here but we do have plenty of the gray ones along with chipmonks and a few of the what we call flying squirrels. Happy New Year. Helen

Ms. Hays said...

Now these are the kind of photos that make you want to say, "Ooo & Ahhh!!!" Very pretty!!!

Natural Moments said...

The sunrise you photographed is so intense that it would awaken one's senses into this moment fully. Beautiful.
