Skywatch Friday: November Sunrise

Early morning in the Glade. November 12, 2010.

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.

Last week we had to get up earlier than usual so Betsy could keep an appointment to get her hair cut.  When I went to the car with her to see her off, I noticed this beautiful sky.  Of course I had to grab my camera and take a picture.

The picture above was taken from the street in front of our house, as you could probably guess from the power lines.  But the color was so nice that I’m posting it anyway.

I then went out onto the golf course in back of the house, where I didn’t have to worry about power lines.  The color of the sky was a little different, but the contrails (or clouds) were still very pretty.

I took this final picture a few moments later, just before the sun popped over the ridge to the east of our house.

    Fantastic captures, George! It looks as though the contrails are playing games in your skies! Love it when I can catch them in color as you’ve done here and yours are superb! Hope you and Betsy have a wonderful weekend!

    My thoughts too that the contrails were trying to play x and o in the skies. Love when I get a chance to see those too. Excellent photos George!

  12. Ginny Hartzler Says:

    These are wonderful and so unusual, almost like sky writing, but natural. I wonder what causes that? Last week, we saw a cloud that looked like a long jet trail. The power lines don’t interfere with the picture at all, and each one is a bit different.

  13. LaVoice Says:
