SkyWatch Friday #56 ~ Hope

(Click on any photo for more detail)
I woke one morning last week very early and could not go back to sleep. I went out to my meditation spot on the knoll to watched the sun rise.
There were all the signs of a change in the weather.
Red morning sky, wispy mares' tails
and fog pouring in from the west coast
but by the time I walked to work the sky was clear and the sun was hot!

I love early mornings in the summer... but I really dislike the waking up process, so I usually miss the best ones!
What a beautiful sunrise!

Very scenic series. The first two shots are my favorite.

I was hoping the red in the morning meant you'd have gotten some much needed rain! Sure is a pretty sky. ;-)

Pristine views! Just lovely!

There's a perfection to those early morning skies-and-water, especially with that thin bright line that seprates them.

Pearl Maple said...

Beautiful collection of photos. Early morning skies are a special treat. Thank you for sharing with us in Sky Watch Friday.

Nothing better than a beautiful sky to help with meditation

Feels like you can walk right into the first photo - it's so calm.

Hope you get some rain soon - you are very welcome to the storms we've got here!

I loved the chance to experience your morning.

And very jealous!

Superlative shots of very scenic place. The reflection in water of the radiant sky is beautiful.

SandyCarlson said...

These are wonderful shots, like meditations in themselves.

VioletSky said...

It all looks so very calm, unlike other areas of your beautiful province.

Regina said...

Beautiful skies and shots.

Lorac said...

Thanks Carolyn, great pics! Love the long shot of the mountains.

Hildred and Charles said...

Early morning is the best time of the day, - always an opportunity for lovely shots like these. We have been very smoky here, too (in the Similkameen)

Naturegirl said...

J Bar said...

The first shot is simply stunning. It took my breath away.

How tantalising to see a change in the weather coming and then for it to disappear. You're so lucky to have such a beautiful spot to go to when you waken early. Here in the city it's not so scenic when I wake early!

I'm glad you take your camera to your meditation spot. Great series of photographs.

Kath said...

Just came over from Mrs Nesbitts to say hello. I love your photos, I'd like to live on that little island...best wishes KAth in England

There is such a sense of hope in pretty morning skies like these! Just delightful!

Arija said...

Not always are the most spectacular skies the most satisfying. Your skies were beautifully atuned to meditating.

ms toast burner said...

Beautiful shots, Carolyn. What a fantastic way to wake up!

Maria said...

very beautiful, thank you for sharing this special place ~ Maria

Marju said...

Beautiful photos!

Janie said...

All the photos are beautiful, but that first one is spectacular. It does give the feeling of hope for a wonderful day.

Vagabonde said...

What beautiful sky – the first picture could be an abstract painting – it is really pretty. I am a late person – usually read until 1 or 2 am, so I don’t get up early enough to watch the early sky, so I love watching yours.

mkreider said...

Lovely, lovely multi-dimentional scenes.

P said...

Cracking pictures.
