Good Morning Sunshine

This is what the sky looked like at about 8:15 this morning in the Bag Lady's neighbourhood.


And about 10 minutes later it looked all soft-focussy:

Wow. It's so pretty...

the Bag Lady said...

It is, isn't it? That's the very best part about living here (and having my computer right beside the east-facing window....)
It is still really pretty - all sorta soft-focus now. Might have to brave the cold to take another picture!

Sarah said...

Beautiful..

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, Sarah!

Sagan said...

Pretty!

I really miss my east-facing bedroom window from when I lived in a house...

the Bag Lady said...

I don't blame you, Sagan! I never tire of looking at the sunrise.

Missicat said...

Beautiful! I have actually seen a few snowflakes in my area the last couple days, which is not normal for my area. I would like one good, deep snow, so send any extra this way please!

Emily said...

wow! I think I could get up to that every morning...but I don't think I could get up as early as you : )

Leah J. Utas said...

Thank you, dfBL. I love the sunrise. The winter ones have such texture and tone and they are far better in the country than the town.

the Bag Lady said...

Missicat - I'm sending, I'm sending - it's not getting there?

Emily - wait until you're older....the hot flashes will get you out of bed early! :)

dfLeah - you're welcome. I love the sunrises in the winter. That's about the only thing I really love about winter.....:)

Wow, I think I could almost handle the crazy-cold if I got to look at that every day! Stunning!

TA - it is almost worth it! And it isn't really all that cold - about 12F right now. And supposed to be warmer on the weekend. Above freezing!

Beautiful! Hope you feel better! Up and at it, Missy!

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks! I even did my jumping jacks, and some weights and stair-stepping today! :)

Reb said...

Lovely Sis!

Hilary said...

Wow.. great shots. I'm not coherent enough for sunrise shots.

Geosomin said...

Wow...we just got the snowy part...the skies are beautiful!

kcinnova said...

Lovely, lovely, lovely! And it is nice that your sunrise happens about an hour and a half after mine. You are actually awake & alert enough to think to grab your camera and take photographs! (I have to take a quick peek out the window and then get kids ready for school.)

df Bag lady,

wonderful pictures and I am glad that you are feeling well enough to be jumping around with the camera again.

the Bag Lady said...

Thanks, Sis!

Hilary - the sun rises so late in the winter, I've usually already had a pot of coffee by the time it appears!

Geo - well, at least you've got part of it....even if it is just the snow part!

kcinnova - that's where I have the advantage - no kids to get ready for anything!

dfTerrie - Thanks - I am feeling quite a bit better! Finally.

That's gorgeous. I'll keep it in mind when I get up tomorrow and there's nothing but grey.

Mary Anne - is it raining there?

Okay, I'll stop.

Ah...this pessimist likes the sunset!
You take amazing photos. Mine usually feature my thumb.

the Bag Lady said...

Mark - Thanks.... anytime!

Miz - Does that mean you don't want to experience it first-hand? :)

Marianne - some things are so easy to photograph, even I can't screw up!
