Morning Sky

Stepping outside this morning I was awe struck by the morning sky.

We are viewing the work of a master artist. And it costs nothing. All you have to do is look.

Whether it is the stars at night or the morning sky or an incredible sunset, it is there for us to see. All we have to do is look.

There is an adage that goes many people look, but do not see ... many people listen, but do not hear.

My goal for today is to see and hear those many things around me every day that I so often take for granted.

Thanks for stopping by. Bailey and I appreciate it!

Good morning to you and Bailey!

Thanks for sharing those beautiful pictures of the sunrise. They are absolutely wonderful!

Do you want to know something funny? The blog I checked just before coming to yours was Pioneer Woman's blog, and she has posted pictures of the sunrise, too! You are right up there with the big time now, Russell!

Have a great day seeing and hearing all the incredible things around you. I'm going to do the same!

Absolutamente' the most gorgeous sky photos I've seen in a long time. But Iowa is all sky, is it not?

Beautiful! Makes getting up early worth while!

So gorgeous Russel. I really must visit Iowa. I live in Washington State and at this time of year we have very grey mornings, which oddly I appreciate, but it is really nice to see mornings from other parts of the country. This is wonderful.

By the way, I'm starting to study for the LSATs. Any advice?

Those pictures would be a wonderful watercolor painting -- especially the second one, with part of the barn showing. Beautiful...!

Russell said...

Thanks for all your comments. I wish the pictures could really capture how overpowering this looked this morning -- but you get the idea.

Mean Mama -- my best advice regarding the LSAT is to take a really good LSAT review course -- the best and most comprehensive you can find. Taking practice tests, going over the questions, figuring out HOW to answer the questions will help a great deal.

Of course, the usual study guides (Baron's, etc.) are essential, too.

Good luck!!

It's not morning when I'm viewing these, but no matter. They're wonderful to see. Thanks for sharing the beauty with us today, Russell!

What a sky treat. We don't see sunrises like that in Boise very often, they're more "sudden" as the sun rises over the mountains. At first, I thought this was a sunset shot. Hi Bailey!

Such a gorgeous sunrise. Love it. The trees are in the way here but I get peeks. Love the fence line and barn in the pic.

I wrote about my town of Stanwood--come take a look.--Actually a couple of days ago--but you can still look. haha!! MB

Wow! That's just gorgeous. I think that first and/or second shot could be entered in a contest and win first prize. Just beautiful.
