This RED Sky This Morning !

This morning's sunrise was phenomenal .. I rolled up my shade and was struck immediately by the colours shouting to me to grab my camera while trying not to stumble on the cats who expected their breakfast BEFORE I ran out to the deck with bedhead and outrageous nightwear (at least I had something on ?) .. snapping pictures as if it would be the very last thing I would do ..... before feeding the "kids" who were well annoyed that the sunrise took precedence over them ?
BUT .... look at this sky ..... it is utterly amazing. Now if I were in the country, perhaps there wouldn't be a neighbor's house as the setting stone ? Never mind ... look at that SKY !


The crow was so perfect in this shot (except for the fuzziness) it sent chills up my spine .. all I could think of was Edgar Allen POE !!!






So this was how my morning started off with a BANG ! .. I think it was a stroke of luck I was awake early enough to catch the changes because once the sun was higher it became so much more yellow .. and it changed very quickly .. I love the sky : )

Beautiful shots of a beautiful sky. Isn't that a GREAT way to start the day!

Kylee said...

Oh Joy, how beautiful! We had a sky like that last Thursday morning and I was kicking myself that I didn't have my camera with me (which I almost always do). I was driving to work and called my mom so she could look out her window and see it. Unfortunately, it didn't look like that where she was, just ten miles south of us.

Hi Kylee .. I am still in awe of this morning's sky .. and to run around getting my camera and NOT fall over a cat was a huge BONUS girl ! LOL .. Isn't it funny how the sky is so different yet not so far away from one point and another ? Questions like that can drive me nuts ! ; )

Nancy .. talk about a WOW factor to see first thing in the morning !

Very pretty Joy. Now I know why I need to get my lazy behind out of bed.

gardenpath said...

Beautiful! Definitely worth running outdoors in your nighty!

GardenJoy4Me said...

Hi Sandy .. I wish they were a bit crisper/clearer ? .. but the colours were so intense it was remarkable !
Your pictures are so beautiful with all the wonderful colours right now where you are !

Debbie .. my god you made me laugh with that remark ! You are one of the busiest, on the go people I know .. I think you need some time in bed as it is .. but hope there are no bitting bugs there any more ? LOL

our friend Ben said...

Wow Joy!!! How spectacular! Thank you for getting out there and capturing it for us!

I bet we were out taking photos of the same red sky at the same time. It sure was gorgeous around here too. And now we are getting the rain so the red sky in the morning prediction came true.

What luck you caught such splendor! Oh, I'm giddy when I see something that spectacular through the lens of a camera. I haven't seen one like that though!

Joy,

Your photos of the red sky are wonderful! You have what my husband likes to call the Bigger Sky view. We have way too many trees to be a ble to capture this great view!

Red Sky In Morning, Sailors take warning, Red Sky at night, Sailor's delight! is the whole saying!

wow... beautiful pictures(-: I love the crow on the roof too(-:

GardenJoy4Me said...

Cindee .. it was amazing .. and the crow thing really caught my eye .. we seem to have a lot more this year for some reason ?

Gail that little saying was so completely stuck in my head .. I never forget it.I guess I shouldn't complain about the sky line now .. you don't have it , even living sort of in the country ? .. wow, that isn't fair ! LOL

Brenda .. I was so excited by it .. if anyone had seen the circus of me trying to get to the deck with two cats tripping me up and camera flying around .. well it was FUNNY : ) .. it was a spectacular sky !

Crafty ... that would have been funny .. two cameras on us taking pictures of the same subject at the same time ? ... and what a sky it was : )

Hi 'ben" .. hey thanks ! .. I try my best ; ) LOL

Roses and stuff said...

Those shots of the sky are really something! I'm glad you woke up early and that you had something on... ; ) -Thanks for letting me share that sky!

Hi Katarina .. You are welcome ! .. it was just such a striking sunrise with the clouds reflecting that light .. I won't forget it ! : )

tina said...

The early morning sun and skies are so wonderful and yes, quite a bang this morning for you. I wish I would get up early enough every morning as I think days that begin like this are awesome.

Beautiful photos, especially the one with the crow in it. I find those birds really fascinating, but also a little sinister... Maybe I've seen them portrayed one too many times in horror films in some spooky or evil way...LOL...

GardenJoy4Me said...

Hi WR .. Thank you ! .. I find them fascinating too and I always associate them with Poe even though I think it was the raven that was in his pieces. There were 3 of them actually on the roof top but I couldn't get to them fast enough .. YES ! it is horror movie month for me .. but the classic black and white ones .. not those trashy slash and gore blood and guts movies .. YUCK ! LOL

Tina .. my brain is set on early morning times .. but by 1 PM .. I'm totally pooped .. so I haven't got much time to get things done in a day .. I have to move quickly ? LOL .. but mornings like this .. YES ! I am too happy to snap some pictures and start like that : )
