Sky Watch Friday # 51

Sky Watch Friday is doing really well. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were a lot of people with beautiful Sky photos. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post.

Sit with me at the dock as I watch the sky explode on Tappan Lake. I was on the dock at 5:15 to see the sky light up. The day broke cloudy and dark in the East.
A half hour later it started to change.
The sky was showing off with some colorful clouds.
The Sun is still behind the hills. This part of Ohio is in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.
The sky continued to brighten as the sun tried to peek over the trees.
There it is as it starts it beautiful climb.
It is now over the top of the trees and the orb is reflecting on the water.

Fibonacci poem (1-1-2-3-5-8) of the sunrise that stirred a feeling with-in.
Observing
nature
beauty abounds
darkness to light
from sun down to earth
brightness comes to us for another lovely day.

Dramatic shots of the lake. It's really good of you to capture the sights of the lake when the sun is rising. Cool!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Watching the sun rise or set is one of the most amazing things to do-and you captured this one perfectly. I really like your poem too.

Craig Glenn said...

Loved the shots Tom, not real sure when the sun comes up here, somebody does that durning the night while I am sleepin' LOL

And the poem... NICE!

Wonderful seies of photos. How fast nature and light changes all by itself, it's just for us to sit there and watch, don't forget to do that

JOE TODD said...

Really nice. I think it is a little harder to photos as nice as that in Ohio

Janie said...

No wonder you fish! These are awesome again, the change in depth of light in each one just magical.

How wonderful to have the time to watch the sunrise unfold, and it is beautiful!

Sally in WA said...

Wonderful series. Funny how at 5:15 it is still fairly dark at your house and here in the Seattle area the sun is much higher up in the sky at that time.

Jan K. alias Afanja said...

As far as I know, the old Greek word 'photography' means 'Writing with light' ... Well, I think that's just what you did: you wrote a wonderful poem about that beautiful sunrise.

erin said...

SandyCarlson said...

When I tilted my head to the right to compensate for the angle at which my computer is sitting on my lap, I saw a sideways keyhole shape formed by the clouds and the water. And I thought, through that view is the secret of heaven. And in it.

Sara G said...

WOW, awesome photo's!
as good as being there!!
Take care and thanks for sharing these great photo's with us!!

Denise said...

The Birdlady said...

That was beautiful I'm glad you were there to see the day break.-

Louise said...

It IS an explosion. What a way to start a day. I think everyone would be a lot nicer if they took time and could see something like this every morning!

Tom said...

Better late than never my friend...
I have not been able to make a dawn outing for a while due to not sleeping well... I do miss that time of day.. the peace and quiet is so relaxing and puts me in a great mood.

I have been having trouble opening you blog... I am sure the problem is mine... it is happening on yours and our friend Carletta blogs... you both have a play list. I think the bother is how IE is dealing wih it.. I need to tweak some setting or another.

Happy Independence Day to you and your family... I hope you all have a great day and party away to the wee small hours... Keep well Tom
from you English friends
Tom and Jane
