August Sunrise

What a glorious sunrise we had this morning! And, I was so glad the New Mexico sky decided to show off! We have had visitors for the weekend, and today is the day they leave, so this was a wonderful send off for them! I love the rays in the above shot - the sun is actually pretty high up into the clouds.
And, off to the north, the sunrise created some beautiful pink & purple colors to the clouds over the Sangri de Christo mountains (I think I spelled them correctly!). It's kind of funny to think of a sunrise as being pink and purple, but that's the magic of the New Mexico sky!

This was actually toward the beginning of the sunrise. It seems that there's a little bit of every color going here. Gosh, I just love sunrises here. Enjoy!

  1. I think sunrises are better than sunsets! Of course I don't like to be awake for the sunrise....
