Sometimes the sunrise here in Estes Park is just spectacular! It’s always a surprise…and a beautiful one at that.
I loved the vibrant orange and yellow colors in this photograph. It was such a magnificent sunrise!
I love to get up in the morning and look outside the windows. I never know what I will find….whether it be some sort of wildlife or just a magnificent sunrise.
This particular morning the sun was rising on the other side of the house but I loved this picture of the hillside with the rain clouds still in the sky from the night before. You can see the sun starting to creep up into the shadows. (To give you a little perspective, that rock in the foreground is about 15-20 feet high.)
Pretty, isn’t it?
You just have to look out the window at the right moment and you never know what you will see! A couple of days ago I happened to look out the window, grab my camera and start clicking away. The sunrise was gorgeous! But within 2 minutes it was all gone. Good thing we have lots of big windows to look out of!!
We usually get up very early in the morning…way before sunrise. Phil will work on the computer and I will read in bed until it looks like the day is beginning. I got up about 6:30 and was making some hot chocolate when I looked out the window. The sun was just coming up and you could tell it was going to be a beautiful sunrise. Within minutes the sky was painted an array of incredible colors! I stood on our deck and snapped away, hoping for that perfect photograph. It was all over within a few minutes. I think I got a pretty good one, what do you think? Another day in paradise…nothing beats a magnificent sunrise in the mountains!
