SkyWatch Friday - August closing

There is a perceptible shortening of the days 
as we head into September, 
so it is lovely to actually be awake to witness the sun rising.  
A couple of very different gifts this week.

  1. Are these taken from your deck? We have a short little house and I can't get a sunrise or a sunset without wires in it.
    These are beautiful and, yes, so different from one another.

  3. The days are certainly shortening and cooling but a sunrise is always a gift, at any time of the year:-)

  9. I know what you mean about it being nice to see the sunrises again! I sometimes think about getting up earlier in the summer, but that seems too much like work! Love your skies!
