The sun coming up on the lake and I had to get up and take a picture of it. I loved the colors of the sky that morning, breathtaking. This is Lake Conway, in Conway Arkansas, looking out my front door.

Brilliant red sunrise.

Ah, for a paintbrush and some Alexander Oil Paints and a spot all ready to set up on Lake Conroy.

I'm not sure there is an artist alive today who could do justice to such a beautiful sunrise.

Definitely "The Touch of the Master's Hand" here.

Thank you so much for sharing with us.

I took this shot at 6:30 in the morning as the sun was just getting up. The trees, mist, water and sunlight just gives a magic look.

Photo Description
As I was leaving my home, I was hit with this magnificent view. I quickly pulled out my phone and took a couple of pictures, one with the flash and one without. One photo enhances the many colors present in the sky, while the other is so full of brilliant light. I love the movement of the clouds against the dark tree line. I also love the lone tree in the foreground, which adds such a beautiful detail. It makes the photo almost seem like a hyperrealist painting!

I was up early Sunday morning while visiting family in Manchester, WA. I noticed the sunrise was full of color and thought it would be a great time to walk down to the water, with my camera and tripod. They turned out pretty good, I think.

The view from our balcony at sunrise the beginning of November. There are people that think that the desert is not a beautiful place. I disagree. The first photo was taken just as the sun started to rise, The second one was taken just after it topped the mountain.

Dawn on the lake.

We spent several days camping at Lost Lake Resort at the foot of Mt. Hood. I got up before the sun every morning to get this photo. The slightest breeze or even fish jumping would ruin the glassy surface! I think it was worth the effort though. I love how the photo came out.

I took these pictures on Thanksgiving morning from an out cropping of rock at the far end of Manchester State Park in WA. It was really special to watch the Puget Sound come alive with wildlife as the sun rose.

I really love the view from Manchester at sunrise. With Mt. Rainer, the islands of the Puget Sound, and Seattle across the water, and the quant homes along the beach; it is truly picturesque.

I was up early and saw this beautiful sunrise on the lake. So peaceful. The next picture is later in the morning. Our cabin was on the main water way to the lake and had lots of boat traffic. Nice to sit and watch the world go by.

Remember the old saying: "Red sky at night, sailors' delight; Red sky in the morning, sailors' take warning." This is such a case. This was taken early February prior to one of the worst snowstorms we had.

Beautiful photo, and fantastic colors. You don't often see such perfection in color such as this. I love silhouettes anyway, and this is one of the best I've seen.

Thank you for sharing.

If there is a better way to wake up than to a sunrise like this I haven't seen it. The color was so spectacular, I ran out in my nightgown to get this picture knowing that it could be gone in seconds.

To show how much I wanted this picture, I was barefoot and we had a foot of snow on the ground. All I had to do was step out the door and go about 10 feet from the front porch, believe me it didn't take long to get back in the house. As you see it was worth every bit of cold toes.

We live by a lake and the pink reflection from the sky repeated itself on the snow and ice. Simply spectacular!

Absolutely awesome, Ann! And running out in the snow to take a photo sounds like something I would do even though I shouldn't. :-) (02/20/2011)

Thanks Ann for sharing such a great photo of such a beautiful sunrise! It was definitely worth running out into the snow for! I hope your toes are warmer now ;-) I would have done the same thing, as I know the scene changes in seconds when I'm taking pictures of sunsets. Your picture is so beautiful I'm saving it in my computer (credited to you, of course). (02/20/2011)

This was taken in the morning after sunrise. The colors were stunning and the neighbor's barn made such a pretty picture in my camera's eye. The beauty in the colors is exquisite. It made me glad I get up early. The sight of this made me smile.

Sunrise from My Porch

Sunrises and Sunsets are such a blessing we enjoy every day living on a lake. Once in a while we get one that is spectacular and just have to capture so we can share with all those who chose to live elsewhere for one reason or another.

Look at the photo again, there's an angel right in the middle. Her wings are fully spread, she's playing a flute, her hips are slightly turned making her gown fluff out. What a great photo! (12/10/2009)
