Dawns Early Light

Early morn and the clouds were moving in from the west.

Ten minutes later and they were overhead as the top of the birch tree caught the first rays of sun.
For more skies go to Sky Watch Friday, hosted for us by Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy, Louise and Sylvia.

Beautiful captures of early morning light, so magical and energizing. Lovely golden color in the clouds as well as top of the birch tree.

That first image looks like a colorful storm coming in, yet 10 mins later, nice to see some blue peeking thru. Nice captures Martha.

Great captures, I loved both of your photos. I guess a lot can happen in ten minutes. There is a big difference in the sky,

Wonderful sky views! I'm often amazed at how quickly views change dramatically as I'm shooting with my camera.

Beautiful! The skyscape changes so quickly and you've captured it very successfully.

One of the best things about this meme is the way it makes us look up--all the time. This is a good example of spending the time to watch the change. Thanks!
