Perfect start

Yesterday when the sun was rising and I looked out the window I saw this
The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours.  No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen.  And the fact that it practically always doesn't, matters not a jot.  The possibility is always there.  ~Monica Baldwin

The sun is but a morning star.  ~Henry David Thoreau, Walden
Not the beautiful unobstructed view of the sunrise that I've seen on some of your blogs but beautiful none the less. It put a smile on my face early in the day and that was good enough for me.

Morning is when the wick is lit.  A flame ignited, the day delighted with heat and light, we start the fight for something more than before.  ~Jeb Dickerson,

I LOVE them all, in all their pink glory. But my favorite is the first one, the half bare tree stretched out against the palest of pink skies!!! Beautiful!

Early mornings are the best! I love the quiet, however it has been raining for weeks now, so it is pretty dark outside. Not as lovely as your sunrise!

Jen said...

Well you know how I do love a good sunrise :o) I often think that the sky is a never ending canvas and God is the painter; He sure does paint some pretty ones, doesn't He?

it's beautiful to me, early morning is my most favorite time of the day, just when the sun comes up above the rim of he earth. also since i am n early bird, i feel my best when i first get up, that is AFTER i get the old bones to stop creaking

It is indeed a wonderful sunrise, but to be honest about it, I could appreciate it more if I had some of whatever Monica Baldwin was on.

It is a lovely sunrise...but did you know that a red one such as this portents a bad day??

The saying over here goes,

Red sky at night, Shepherds delight.
Red sky in the morning, Shepherds warning.

I know for a fact that this doesn't always ring true but I just wondered if you had heard of the saying??

Beautiful! Sometimes trees and roof lines give a sunrise character!

A lovely moment to catch, there is lots of energy in a sunrise for me.
