Sunrise at Ormond Beach, Florida. August 6, 2009.

No, the picture above was not taken in Oklahoma, but in Ormond Beach, Florida.  It was the day after Betsy’s birthday and we would be heading home later in the day.  But when this morning picture was taken we were able to enjoy the start of a new day as the sun came up over the Atlantic.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

    George that is so pretty. I don’t know what is more peaceful, the mountains or the beach. If I had to pick which one to live at, I’m not sure which it would be.

    Beautiful colors! You can see the pink sun rays radiating out into the blue sky.

    What a lovely pastel sky George!
    Love the reflection in the water and those blue rays in the sky – what a really beautiful morning it must have been.

    Pink and blue – so pretty!!

    Oh so beautiful. It seems funny to see ‘the sun come up over the Atlantic Ocean’ her the sun comes up over the mountains and goes down into the Pacific Ocean. It seems so backwards. LOL

    Beautiful sky.
    I lived in Ormand Beach, Florida for a few months. When I retired from my job in Las Vegas, NV, we bought a travel trailer and lived in that for a year traveling all over. We stayed right by the beach for 2 months in Ormand beach. It was cold and rainy the whole time we were there, but I do love the ocean.
