Pier At Sunrise

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Betsy and I got up each morning we were at the beach in order to watch the sunrise.  I captured this photo on our last morning as we were loading up the car to head home.  The sun had not yet popped up over the horizon, but I really liked the colors in the sky.  The pier and the reflections in the sand were a nice bonus.

I wish I was seeing such a sight today, but covered in snow. We really got a lot last night.

Betsy Adams said...

Absolutely gorgeous... I'll admit that it made me cry since I wish I were there and not here --with all of the ice/sleet.... NOT FUN... BUT--the photo and our memories of the beach also made me smile. Thanks for sharing the beauty...

Love you,
Wifey

Spectacular, George!!!
My favorite moments of sunrise/sunset are the magical lighting while the sun is below the horizon. Moments worth waiting (or waking!) for.

Absolutely stunning image.
GREAT SHOT!

Marie said...

Wow, wow, wow! Great shot of a gorgeous sunrise, George! Hope your birthday was awesome! I meant to tell you that when we were feeding the baby hummingbirds, mama's return warranted a very angry tirade towards us at the glass door. For one reason, because I was afraid the babies would freeze in the cold nights without mama to keep them warm, I hung a sock over the nest. She came home to see the sock, and was NOT happy! :-) I removed it and we left them alone after that. She seemed to stay for the duration, and it's always been a mystery as to where she went for almost two days! The Desert Museum said that they sometimes start a second nest, but then the OTHER eggs or babies were not getting enough of her time after she returned. I just don't know.
