Skywatch Friday

This picture is from July, the sun was rising as we made our way past the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. No sun today we are having rain all day long.

Sorry, Eileen, I hit the wrong button. I was just admiring the color of the sunrise. Lovely to see at first light of day.

This is the kind of picture everyone (at least me) wants to see over a large body of water. I've seen it once, without camera. Love it.
