Early mornings are the most beautiful time of the day. On Sunday I awoke to the most amazing sky. Here are a few shots.
The sky to the east was overcast. The sun was forecasting its arrival with some light.
The sky to the north showed the edge of the overcast. The Northwester was shaping the clouds with its fast current.
The turbulence shaped the clouds like a fast current the surface of the water.
Towards the sunrise the clouds seems to form shapes like stones in the river. Early sunlight reflected on the clouds.
Above the neighbours' houses the turbulent clouds looked quite stormy.
These shapes are all caused by high winds as they tumble after crossing the mountains.
Monday morning was placid overcast. Yet along the horizon, the nearing sun sent out messages of light.
Later Monday, the light has spread further.
The sun has risen..... behind clouds.
Tuesday morning a glorious shower of light greeted us.
It was followed by a bright clear day.
Wednesday was much like Tuesday. It promised a fine day.
A cloud to the southeast was promising a sunrise soon.
Once the sun has risen.. the glorious cloud is just another .... cloud.
Thursday. Just before the moon disappears for a day. The old moon is just a sickle. The deep blue of the sky is no daylight color.
This is much more like daylight, with the sky almost showing its true colours. The going sun is announcing its arrival with a glow along the horizon. It will be a good day. There is a frost on the ground as it is winter.
Friday. Today. A clear day [with frost] is announced. Half an hour to sunrise.
The sun is above the horizon, and sunlight colours the tree tops and house rooves. There is still frost on the ground, but we are promised a midday temperature of 15 degrees Celsius.
Have a nice day. Chris the Pipemaker.
