SkyWatch Friday - Stormy sunrise

Storms, storms and more storms continue to roll in.  Sometimes the sun gets a chance to peek through the cloud either in the morning or evening.  Tuesday morning as I was leaving for school, we had a beautiful sunrise to celebrate another snow/rain storm moving in.  This was taken from my back steps.


Half way to school I captured this scene.


A great way to start another wild day in Idaho.

Just stunning. Looks like a lone Christmas tree in the first one. I just had to click to enlarge to get the full affect.

I love when the sunrise lights up the bottom of clouds. Too many people wish for clear skies, but I like seeing cloudy skies. You never know when you'll see scenes like these!

Have a great weekend, Bill!

I know that you have had some of the most gorgeous, dramatic, awesome skies that I've ever seen -- and I don't mean just this week! You've been sharing incredible shots like this for weeks and I love it!! I'm envious, but love that you share them! Have a wonderful weekend, Bill, take lots more pictures!!

Love the drama in your photos! We have had so much rain, driving rain, and even a tornado two days ago... practically unheard of.

Beautiful winter skies!! I heard today that orange generally signifies more dust in the air, refracting the light...not nearly as romantic as Angels singing, or Zeus yawning...both stunning shots!!

Gaelyn said...

Wow, your stormy skies sure make breathtaking sunrises!

Such very beautiful light! Strong and dramatic in the first photo and softly romantic in the second!
