  5. I was driving home at dawn the other day and the eastern sky was just on fire. I had to run in the house, grab my camera and head a few blocks over to the bay to try and capture it....

  15. I absolutely love the top one! normally I am not a fan of a lot of red in photos (makes me think of Redline-artist) but these are stunning!

  16. really stunning pictures! did you know that
    a reddish sunrise, caused by particles suspended in the air, often foreshadows an approaching storm, which will be arriving from the west, within the day. Conversely, a reddish sunset often indicates that a storm system is on the east side (opposite the sunset), travelling away from the viewer. A similar movement is noted all around the world, in both the northern and southern hemisphere.

  17. Those are beautiful shots.

    When I was growing up we recited that saying often. Since moving to the Pacific Northwest, I can't believe all the people that say they have never heard it!

    I remember the week I somehow got the first spot. Felt like I won the lottery. Wore off pretty fast though since it did not come with a cash prize.

    Happy WW!

  27. What does the red sky means for sailors? I'm clueless there.

    Absolutely gorgeous photos!

    ReplyDelete
  28. the saying goes "Red sky at morning, sailors take warning, Red sky at night, sailors delight."
    Supposedly, a red sky at dawn is a sign bad weather, a storm, is on the way and a red sky at night is a sign of fair weather on the way.

    I will quote Dawn, who posted above about why..."a reddish sunrise, caused by particles suspended in the air, often foreshadows an approaching storm, which will be arriving from the west, within the day. Conversely, a reddish sunset often indicates that a storm system is on the east side (opposite the sunset), travelling away from the viewer. A similar movement is noted all around the world, in both the northern and southern hemisphere."

    Thank you Dawn...very cool to know why!
