The sky was full of orange, blues, and subtle hues as the rising sun called the day to life during our morning walk. It inspired visions of Caribbean scenes that we have enjoyed in the past, and the warm moist air carried the feel of the sea. Perhaps it is time to schedule a cruiseContinue reading “Salty Morning Sunrise”

Faint dawn twilight began to brighten the bedroom as I rolled over to snooze just a few minutes more. “Don’t they pick up yard waste today?” said a distant voice that somehow crept into my consciousness. Oooohhh! Yep, I had to get up and get the containers to the street before they came to pickContinue reading “Full Dawn”
The Front in the Back
The morning light fairies were at it again. My wife, who was facing the back window, said: Look at the reflection of the front doorway window. I looked and saw nothing. She told me to stand where she was at her eye-level, and there it was like a bright, sun-burnished sprite. Minutes later it wasContinue reading “The Front in the Back”
Spring Light Sunrise
Fingers of sunrise seem to poke and prod from curious directions as the Sun moves northward towards spring, making the days longer. Here it sparkles in window decorations above the door and casts tinted light on the adjacent wall. Another free, morning delight. #sunrise #spring #windows #sunlight
Red In the Morning, Tornado Warning?
“Red in the morning, sailor take warning” applies to landlubbers as well. Our morning walk was cut short by rain precipitated by an approaching cold front. A short time later the rising Sun briefly painted the sky red, and the weather radio warned of a tornado watch for the area until 4 PM. Soon theContinue reading “Red In the Morning, Tornado Warning?”
As the Sun proceeds south in its autumn plunge towards winter, it sometimes briefly projects surprising designs through the windows onto the opposite walls. We never know what may appear next with these ephemeral luminary adventures. #sunrise #autumn #winter
The Company You Keep
It was fun watching the Moon duck in and out of the clouds in the western sky while the Sun rose in the east recently. The football-shaped Moon was clearly marked with dark lava flows across its brilliant face as it headed towards last quarter. Without the white clouds, however, the auto exposure of theContinue reading “The Company You Keep”
No Time for iPhones and Earbuds
The harvest Moon and Jupiter peered between clouds through a slot in the trees. A nearby owl hooted as we walked the deserted street. Cicadas, commonly called katydids, buzzed out their morning song as the dawn brightened and burnished clouds with an orange glow. Birds awoke to serenade us with their chirping, singing, and cawing,Continue reading “No Time for iPhones and Earbuds”
Glow or Glower?
This curious patch of orange appeared in the eastern sky just before sunrise. It appeared not only beautiful but, also somewhat ominous, considering that it is hurricane season. Perhaps it was just a Rorschach test for the amusement or the trepidation of anyone who happened to notice its brief apparition.
By the Dawn’s Early Light
During a recent morning walk, the dawning sky changed from dark and ominous to blazingly brilliant over a period of about 28 minutes. We heeded the warning of “red in the morning,” and were properly sheltered during the afternoon thunderstorms that followed. Undaunted, however, was a planet peering through the clouds. Venus, in the upperContinue reading “By the Dawn’s Early Light”
