SWF>>>Sunrise

To see more pretty skies you can click Skywatch Friday

I have really been enjoying the sunrises on my way to work. And most times I was forgetting to take my camera. I did remember one morning and the sky was beautiful.

 I loved these colors, the pinks, purples and blues are gorgeous.





 I have a few spots where I am able to pull over on the side of the road, otherwise I would be getting the evil eye from the crazy drivers who are in a hurry to go to work.



 I had to throw in the pretty Cedar Waxwing with the blue sky. The Waxwing is another one of my favorite birds.

Another one of my cute yardbirds is the Chipping Sparrow.

 The beautiful moon on the side of one of our pine trees.



I love zooming in on the moon.

I thought I would show hubby's sunset shot taken when out for a walk to the lake with our Goldie Girl.

 I hope you enjoyed my skies and to see more beautiful skies from
around the world please visit Skywatch Friday.
Thanks to Sylvia and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday and thanks for stopping by to see my skies. Have a safe and happy weekend.

Wonderful shots. Pretty pink sunrise and golden sunset are beautiful.

Linda said...

Those sunrise shots are so beautiful! And I loved the closeups of the birds...I would love to see a Cedar Waxwing!

I love monsoonal season skies in the deserts southwest the best. I'm putting together a collection of photos of towering 40,000 foot Thunderhead at Sunset over the Colorado River and Arizona in general. Incredibly, after the sun sets below the horizon of California's west coast, many of those Thunderheads are so high they can reflect momentarilt the sun's light from another part of the Earth.

Nice sky colours eileen

great idea to have a bird on top of my Christmas tree.

They certainly are colourful skies. It makes one want to be able to fly and cruise through the colours.

We are always surprised by the sky, and can never know how pretty it can be.

Gorgeous moon, sunrises -- and your hubby's photo is great! Happy Thursday, Eileen! :)

You know, sunsets are great but nothing really beats a colorful sunrise.

Pam said...

Pastel skies are a lovely way to start your day, Eileen. I love your bird and moon captures as well.

Wow!Lovely moon shot,i never seem to get it right with it.

KB said...

Beautiful sunrise photos! You must be out very early to see them at this time of year. Here, in CO, we don't get spectacular sunrises at this time of year because the day dawns too clear. But, our sunsets are gorgeous due to the thunder clouds gathered over the mountains.

I love your cedar waxwing. I saw one once here. They must be common there?

Hubby's photo is great too!

ShySongbird said...

Lovely, very peaceful photos, the little sparrow is so sweet! I don't envy you going to work before it is light though, I'm not good at early mornings!

I loved those colourful Orioles on the previous post and all the purple flowers on the earlier post are so pretty, wonderful clematis!

EG CameraGirl said...

Beautiful shots, Eileen. I especially love the cedar waxwing shot. We have chipping sparrows in our yard too, so we have something in common.

There's something about that light at sunrise, it's magical. That's a great photo of the moon. All super photos. I have only seen the waxing but rarely, it is a beautiful bird. The chipping sparrow shot was very sweet too and I enjoyed your husband's sunset shot. Have a great weekend Eileen.

From sunrise to sunset, you've captured it all. It looks like the morning sky is on fire and then cooling to a beautiful blue sky day.

Hi Eileen, What a lovely series of sky photographs! I too like the Cedar Waxwings. I saw them here last Fall in a large flock. Pretty and alert birds. Have a fantastic coming weekend and a nice day today!

forgetmenot said...

Beautiful skies. I love the moon shot--my camera won't do that (darn). You do get some terrific shots of birds--always fun to see what you have captured. Have a great weekend. Mickie :)

Your husband's sunset shot is awesome!! Nice post, and happy weekend.

Kateri said...

Love all of these, but got to admit am a bit partial to the cedar waxwing. We don't seem to have those where I live right now and I miss them.

Debbie said...

gorgeous shots of the beginning and end of your day!!

love the birdies all well, catching them in trees always makes for a pretty photo!!

Martha in PA said...

All your pictures are fabulous! I don't often see the rising or setting sun the way our building is situated, I have to go out of our community to really see either! I'm hoping this summer Tara and I can take some early morning adventures into nature!

Lydia said...
