I took this picture last weekend. I woke up early because of the chill in my house after my power went out overnight. The power outage was a surprise because the snowfall wasn’t extreme in my area. It barely stuck to the roads. Fortunately, my power came back on after about 9 hours; some people in nearby counties, where there was heavy snow were out for days!
Seeing this beautiful sunrise was the reward for my chilly “suffering!”

Yesterday, I noticed that the theme of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for the week was sky. Looking up, I found it to be a pleasant surprise to see the moon in the blue sky of day.
At times, the half moon had to peek through the soft clouds floating across the sky.
I always look for images in the clouds. This cloud formation struck me as a Phoenix rising in the sky.
What do you see?
JNW’s Color Your World photo challenge theme for today is sky blue. I just love a clear blue sky! And, if you look close, you can see the pretty blue feathers on this bluejay too! I was double blessed with the beautiful view!
Have a great weekend, everybody!
Here’s a little sunset orange memory painted across the sky!
Posted for JNW’s Color Your World Photo Challenge – Sunset Orange.
My mother first noticed this distinct cloud line and encouraged me to take the photograph. We thought the straight line separating colorful clouds from clear sky was unusual. The picture was taken near dusk and a storm was on its way. The sharp cloud line mirrors the power line, and the dark trees on either side give a mirror image effect.
I believe this photo meets the daily post Half and Half challenge of posting a picture with two clear halves.
Does anybody else see a smiling face? I also see a dolphin! It’s funny how we all see different things when we gaze at the clouds.
Maybe, what we see is dependent on our mood or our experiences. Maybe, we see what we want to see.
I’m curious. What do you see in these clouds?

Floating melon fluff
Sweet clouds of cotton candy
Soothe the break of dawn

Warm orange flows across the glow of the evening sky to the smile of a tasty goldfish!
Perky orange petals take bloom. Swirls of orange stir the mix. Deep orange grounds garden clogs and also frees dreams of flip flops in the sand.
I hope you enjoy this medley of photos posted in response to the prompt to post multiple photos with a pop of orange.
Gaze upon the skies
With wonder and amazement
Spinning fire, open space
No limits, infinite hope
With ambition and tranquility
Gaze upon the heavens

I am not a morning person. I hit my snooze alarm multiple times before I can bear to get up. That means I have to set my clock to ring early as a buffer so I have time to hit the snooze button. I am not above trying to fool myself into getting up on time.
I say “thank you” as soon as my feet hit the floor. I think that starting the day with words of gratitude is a good habit. Still, I go about my morning routine in a blasé manner. Routine is routine after all.
Maybe, I like the little thrill that comes from beating the clock, the adrenaline rush of meeting the press for time. Maybe.
I do know that the best reward for getting up early is a view of a beautiful sunrise!
