A study in contrasts  
I was hopeful as I left home this morning. The sky looked much lighter than it had for several mornings. As I turned East, I could see that I was correct; I was going to see quite a display. The eastern horizon was splattered with a bank of dark clouds, but there was a small clear band near the horizon. Soon the clouds were tinged with pink and the anger red ball of the sun could be seen in that thin window. Higher up in the sky, there was one of those windows in the clouds that created a glorious sight. The clouds surrounding the window were dark and unaffected by the sun, but the very edge of the clouds was bright yellow where the sun shone through. With the sun getting higher in the sky by the moment, the clouds were transformed. I walked the long way around the building before going inside, so ZI could see it all for a bit longer! I surely must have a digital camera. This kind of display just has to be shared.
Current Mood: Awesome

I so wish I had a digital camera!

I want to tell you, too, that I really appreciate your descriptions of the sunrise and sky every morning. I feel so fortunate every time I see the sunrise or sunset or even an interesting formation of clouds. I probably spent an hour or so last night just gazing at the full moon as it passed through the clouds, with Mars just off to the side of it. It's nice to know that someone else also takes the time to apprectiate the beauty of the world.

Re: ..
You are welcome and thank you for telling me. It's nice to be appreciated. I think descriptive writing is the type I enjoy most and it sure helps to have such a beautiful subject to describe.

The way you describe images seems to be a digital picture in my mind. You have SUCH a gift for that.

Thanks for sharing Gary!

You are welcome Shellie. I enjoy doing it. They do say a picture is worth a thousand words. When the sunrise was like it was this morning, I feel my words can't really do it justice, but I suppose a picture would not really capture it either. There's nothing that beats seeing it for yourself, except the early hour, of course. :-)
