Glowing Sunrise

A few weeks ago I was getting ready to head out to the office when I saw clouds off to the east that portended a fine sunrise. So of course I had to wait with camera in hand.
And sure enough, that gap between the clouds and the eastern horizon gave us that classic fiery sunrise glow.
And we certainly got an intense glow this time!
All photos are straight out of the camera for Skywatch Friday and Orange Friday.

  3. Wonderful shots, especially the last one. In summer you get a lot of intenes sunset photos in Vancouver, but around that time of the year there's only greyness. So thanks for sharing! :)

    Cheers,

  13. That is an awesome sky! There's no other word for it. I hadn't heard of the Orange meme, but this certainly definitely fits!

    BTW, Gemma has started a new meme to substitute for the apparently defunct Scenic Sunday. (There's a link at mine.)

    · Those who are standing at that time are given away by the beautiful skies of dawn. You are very lucky.

    If my English is too bad, you can correct it. I hope you catch the idea.
