If at First you don't Succeed. . .

. . . try another sunrise.

Saturday morning at 6:35, a tap, tap tap on the shoulder wakes me. Aware of Friday's sunrise photography attempt, my husband points out the window.  The sky glows orange and pink through the trees, but it's a seven minute drive to the harbor.  Darn.

Sunday, I don't give it a thought.  Today though, since it's MLK Day. . . it isn't necessary to make breakfast or a school lunch.  So I get an extra half-hour of sleep and still have enough time to hop into the car to try for these.  It is cold as you-know-what out there, but the views are worth the frozen fingertips.

Happy Monday folks.

How nice of you to share. These are beautiful. Love the pink with winter tree, swing and white house. What a contrast.
Especially nice to see since I am a nightowl and never see the sunrise.

So subtle and lovely--moments frozen in time. I'd say it's worth cold fingers (although I didn't have to suffer them!)

Pretty pictures! I like the one with the house. Did you catch the moon this morning? Thought of you when I saw it.

Nice pics ... I love sunrises over cold places. Weird, I know. But the coffee and breakfast at Denny's is so much better.

thank you for freezing your fingertips to get these images for us; they are stunning. You can almost touch the stillness, serenity. And I'd never be out of bed early enough to catch them!
