Sky Watch Friday- 3-26-2010

Thank you to our Sky Watch Team for all their efforts and time to bring us skies from all over the World for our pleasurable viewing.

My post today is a view of a great sunrise we had on March 22,2010.


As I opened the curtains early that morning I found that Grandfather Sun had already been painting the skies with color, to greet us as we looked outside and prepared for the day.




Wonderful color in the East, what a way to start the day.


A view to the North as the Sun kisses the mountain closest to us and brightens the sky.



Not to be left out, in the North West, there is beauty also.




Soft Pastel colors in the South West.





And, just for good measure, a great show of color in the West.

Ahh. A few more months and I'll be wishing I was up there with you. Summer down here in the Piedmont can be brutal. This looks like the area around Hendersonville or Asheville. Is it?

My "fav" photograph would be the second one. It is so awesome how the sun can pick one place to say "behold this beauty here." Nice capture...Bob.
