I rarely get to see a sunrise. In fact, I can't remember the last time - if ever - that I've seen the sun as it eases high into the sky. I happened to look out my back window this morning and the sunshine coming in seemed pretty bright. I moved all the way to the left to get a better look and, lo and behold, shining through the trees was that big ball of light.
When I stepped out onto the deck, this is what I saw. It took me a couple of tries to get a shot because I couldn't look in that direction. The brightness of the sun was blinding. The first shot is very interesting ... besides the sun and the trees there appears to be a big sitting on one of the branches. Is it a bird or a weirdly placed ray of light? I didn't see anything on that branch, but - then again - I couldn't really see.
I've never seen a bird like that in the area so I'm going to try to enlarge the photo so I can get a better look. Do you see a bird?
I really like the next photo 'cause of the colors of red that are sparked off of the trees and leaves by the sun.
When I turned to look at the sky in the opposite direction there was nothing but clear blue skies with wisps of clouds. What a welcome sight after so many dark days and rain. I hope we've seen the end of it even as I see my weather icon flashing with a storm warning.
