Sunrise today


January 23rd 2013


The magic moments lasted for several minutes, then all those glorious colours vanished to grey sky. These were taken over 10 minutes.

Wow, awsome pictures, what a great show you had

Nancy J said...

Thank you Carol, Horst and Lindsjo, suddenly there was this beautiful show of colour, so I hitched up the jamas, donned gumboots, and hurried to the back garden.( no neighbours close by!!) No PP at all, I just cropped the workshop roof from the first one. But as fast as the red/pink/orange came, it went and left a pale dull grey.Almost a sign of autumn already. Greetings from Jean.
