It’s been quite awhile since I posted any sunrise photos, and I thought some of you may be suffering withdrawal.

These photos are from December 9.

This was the first picture I took that morning – around 6:30. A little pink hint of a sunrise, and “my” ducks at the forefront of the photo.

An hour later. No pink, all blue.


Groom Swan paid a visit that morning.

The reflections of the clouds in the water were as clear as you’ll ever see.

Uh-oh, What’s this? In the other direction: rain clouds.


And….rain drops.


The time on this last picture? 7:41.

  6. Love your pictures. Even the rain clouds are beautiful in their own way. You are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful place.

  7. Good Morning Dianna! Very nice to see one of your sunrises. I always love the marina shots. Looks like the ducks have their own little pool. Good to see Groom Swan too!

  8. exquisite! They look like paintings. It is also helpful to live in such a beautiful place where you get to witness so many gorgeous sunrises!

  9. Lovely as always. We had a spectacular sunrise one day this week and while I’m not always coherent enough in the early morning to grab my camera, I did manage to capture it. I’ll post it on one of my Wordless Wednesdays soon.

  10. Withdraw indeed! LOVELY! And what a crisp reflection shot – that’s an all time favorite!

  12. Great sunrise and visitors. Isn’t it amazing how still the water can be at times, like a sea of glass?

  13. I’m so glad you get up early in the morning with your camera so I can see all this without getting out of bed! Your photos just keep getting better! Thank You!
