SWF>>>Sunrise & Sunset

I am linking up my sunrise with Skywatch Friday

I have been leaving early enough for work to catch some pretty sunrises. Since, I am driving I have to pull over to capture some of the pretty sky. Again there are times I could kick myself for not taking my camera with when I leave for work. I do have some beautiful memories of some gorgeous sunrises lately.




I thought the fog in this scene looked cool with the sunrise.


I had to zoom in for a closer look at the fog, the sky was a pretty orange color. I believe the tall line is the radio tower for the watershed protection headquarters building.

I hope you are not tired of my seeing my birds because I had to throw in this cute Great-Crested Flycatcher perched on my weeping Cherry tree later in the day.

And now I have some a few shots of the sunset from my deck. I like the clouds, colors and the silhouettes of the trees.

It is amazing how fast the clouds and the colors can change while skywatching.


I do not think there has been a time where  I have NOT see a turkey vulture flying around my neighborhood. I managed to catch one in this shot usually there are more than one.

To see more beautiful skies from around the world please visit Skywatch Friday.  Thanks to the hosts of Skywatch: Sylvia and Sandy.  Also, thank you for stopping by to see my skies. I wish everyone a safe and HAPPY weekend.

Are you kidding? I never get sick of birds on your blog:) Flycatchers are some of the most interesting and colorful characters around. Don't tell me you're on your way to work already?? I'm planning on going to bed soon....I cannot sleep. During the day, it's too hot so I sleep. Then I'm up at night! Thanks for sharing your skies:)

Agreed - how could we get tired of the birds on your blog? Your identification is very helpful too! I love your sunrises and the view from your deck...that one with the fog is magical! Have a great day!

Very nice sunrise and sunset shots.

Ah, a great crested flycatcher in your yard - very cool. Just last week I added one to my still short life list...and I was ecstatic, but I saw it in a tall tree way high up on the edge of a woods a few miles from home.

Those orange sky shots are beautiful!!!

SquirrelQueen said...

What gorgeous skies. The one with the tower has an almost surreal look. I never get tired of the bird photos on your blog, I love them all.

Looks like my blog is back to normal. I never got any emails from Blogger. I asked them to review it last night and this morning the warning was gone. I think it was a glitch. I run daily virus scans on my computer too and periodical scans on my blogs. Good old Blogger is always doing something odd.

Dimple said...

Beautiful shots, Eileen. The skies have been cooperating with you!

Lew said...

Stewart M said...

Hi there - I think pictures taken on the way to or from work are a real treat - brings a bit of something other than "work, work, work" into the day.

Cheers - Stewart M
