Skywatch Friday - A February Sunrise

Here are some pictures of the sunrise on February 23, as I left for work.  We are in, as is much of the United States, an unseasonable warm spell.

The first picture, obviously, was taken facing the east.

A couple of blocks away, the sunrise progresses.

Right after the second picture, I faced the west.  Part of the joy of the sunrise is seeing the color changes in the opposite direction.

And, just a couple of minutes later, the colors shift.

Visit #SkywatchFriday and see pictures of the sky from all over the world.

    1. Now, you'll be warmer than us once again. As nature intended.

    1. If someone is too warm, someone is too cool. I suppose, if everyone was too hot, I would really be scared.

  3. Beautiful shots, Alana. The patch of clouds seem so welcome sitting here with temperatures hovering around 36 degrees. Too hot for my liking.

    1. If we were 36 here (98 in our temperature system), everyone would be complaining.

  4. So beautiful clicks, Alana. I love watching the mesmerizing sky and capturing picture after picture. But the truth is my clicks don't justify the beauty of sky a least bit.

  8. Beautiful pictures, I love mornings like that. We had thunderstorms last night and it snowed all day today.

  9. Oooh, pretty.

    So long as you like the unseasonably warm temps, we'll be happy here with the cooler temps. Nice trade off.

  10. I couldn't even see the sky this morning. Our fog here has been pretty bad this year. Rain today and maybe some storms this evening.

  11. Alana, lovely SWF photos! It got really warm in the Tennessee Valley (77º) today but tomorrow it's forecast to be 25 degrees cooler during the day and drop below 30 tomorrow night. I'm not looking forward to that! Mother Nature's must be going through menopause! :) Thanks for dropping by earlier!
