The prettiest part of the day!

Any of you who have read here very long know that early morning is my favorite part of the day.

And isn’t it human nature that when you enjoy something you want to convince others that it’s worthy of their enjoyment too?

So, late sleepers, here are a couple pictures I’ve taken recently of particularly spectacular sunrises.

I looked out my kitchen window one morning and what struck me about this, besides the beautiful color in the sky, was that the water was literally like glass. ย Not a ripple anywhere.

This morning as I was making coffee, I noticed there was an out-of-the-ordinary glow outside, so I got my camera (after quickly getting the coffee started — I like it almost as much as sunrises!) and went outside. ย This picture doesn’t even do that sky justice — it was just glowing.

Even if you don’t get up early enough for sunrises, beauty is everywhere in nature, at all times of the day — you just have to take the time to notice it.

May you have a blessed, beautiful Friday!

    I tend to not notice sunrises…but I love running at sunrise, because I do notice it, and it lifts my spirits as I’m pushing my body!

    Beth — I don’t think that would work for me. The sweat running in my eyes and the really heavy breathing would probably keep me from enjoying the view! ๐Ÿ™‚

    You really ought to submit those to a contest – especially the 1st one. It is absolutely beautiful. Love the contrast of the close up flowers in the foreground with the trees/houses,etc. of the b/ground. And the reflection in the lake sets off the whole thing! Lovely! you REALLY should submit it somewhere.

    The purples in the first picture are breath taking. I love the mornings but since my girls are on summer vacation, I must admit I have been sleeping in. Keep on taking your pictures.

    Cathy — That is so nice of you to suggest I might win something with that shot! I have sometimes thought about sending one to a contest, but I haven’t got around to it yet. But really I’m just thrilled when a friend like you enjoys one of the ones I post here. Good enough for me! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Amy — I remember what that was like. You sleep when you get the chance, because you don’t always get to sleep when you’d LIKE to! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Julie — Thank you. I never get tired of sunrises. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Beautiful images, Sandra. I agree.. send them in somewhere. You should be proud of these. And thanks for sharing your sunrise. I see way fewer of those in summer than sunsets. ๐Ÿ˜‰
