Early AM Backyard

 These were taken Saturday AM at the same time, above shooting to the South at sunrise, below shooting to the East and into the rising sun....
This is what we watch as our Jake the Energizer Bunny chases his tennis ball, every morning at the same time, sun up means throw that ball.
Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.

My definite favorite is the middle one, number two!! Just the right amount of black silhouettes, with the beautiful pink stripes of the sky behind!!!

the religion? what I was born I was always told the truth?
When a person dies it goes to where? It
back? The b? BLIA supports homosexuality? Who DOES NOT
inherit the kingdom of God? What should I know about
idolatry, images and sculpture? What should I know
about? single baptism? Being? which has a single one? AGENCY
to save? it? Who do I confess me, who
can you forgive me? Religion? Saves someone? M? These and
other questions and answers:
You? can tell, I j? I am saved? m! Let's atr? S
who DOES NOT this one? If you? want to get along with

It has to be true!? Share this site
because:? Behold v? m days, saith the Lord Jehovah? in
will send a famine on earth, no? the famine of p? the,
nor a thirst for? water, but of hearing the words of

You have a SPAM comment. From some "Salviano"...


Are the SPAM'ers back in business, on blogs?????????

Will we all have to resort to Comment Verification?

After warning you of your SPAM-in-comments, I return to pretty blog land stuff.

How lucky you are to have a dawn-wake-up-caller. :-) So you don't miss the daily beauty.

This is what I thought - it a choice to look at the light or a choice to look at the dark. Now in this case both area beautiful choices - but that isn't true every time. sandie

Great photos of the sky, Sandra... Think you might have some kind of long spam comment.... Did you see it?

Why didn't you take the line out of the first picture? I have learned to do that on Photoshop--and I use that little tool alot!!!!

I love sunrises. There is a distinct difference between sunrises and sunsets, the colors are different. I'm an early riser so I often get to see sunrises.
