Red Sky Morning

Look what we woke up to this morning,
The reddest ice in the driveway,
Glowing like fire. Or is that a lake full of ripples and gentle waves.
The dark shadow is the trunk of a huge spruce tree between the drive and the garden., gosh, I love that reflection..
I'm amazed how quickly the colors of a sunrise and a sunset change.
By the time I walked from one room to the next to retrieve my camera, the red had already faded to lighter shades of orange, pinks, yellow. It still looks pretty peeking through the branches of the spruce tree out my dining room window.
It even showed hues of red through the frosted glass of the bathroom window...sorry, didn't mean to take you along.
And the evening ended with shadows reflecting, thanks to a full moonlit night. The bright spot in the center of the photo is the moon on the icy driveway again, with the head of the metal blue heron between the deck rails.
Do click on the photos for a closer look. You won't be disappointed.
I'm sure to be corrected if I say this wrong, but doesn't the saying go something like this:

Red Sky in Morning
Sailor take Warning
Red Sky at Night
Sailor's Delight

The red sky of this morning brought us Weather Warnings for our entire state, for snow. At least it will be just a lil' bit compared to what Alaska is getting. My prayers go out to them as they dig their way out of another 15 feet, not inches, of snow.
They should be able to grow record-sized cabbages this year again, with all the unexpected moisture.

Be safe and shovel out slowly. No amount of snow is worth a heart attack or sliding off the road. Stay warm.

Love those beautiful pictures, Dar! And yes, your little sailor's quote is correct. I've used it for years, just as you have it.

It is a gift to be able to see beauty in something as mundane as an ice patch in the driveway. Keep it up! Bubble trees is a good name too. Nancy

Sorry, just getting around. I love the pictures, yep, Red Sky in the Morning ain't good for weather. Usually works out to be true.

The color is great, but it is amazing how fast sky colors change sometime.

Love you and thanks for a good read.

Those are gorgeous pictures... I'm also amazed at how quickly those sunrises and sunsets change... I've ran inside the house to get my camera only to get back outside and find my "perfect photo" opportunity was gone!

Natures ever changing scenes are amazing! The bathroom window reminds me of frosted little trees.
