Be still, my heart

Creeping out at the crack of dawn

In my dressing gown…

Purple sky copy

Leaves me speechless

When I see the painted swirl

Of the dawn sky.

Purple mist copy

I gaze in wonder for a long time

And take in a deep breath

Of happiness.

  36. Beauty!
    Morning fog rising off a lake at sunrise is one of few things in life that make me a temporary morning person. Maybe the ONLY thing. I do the same when we are on the water.. creep out of bed in my pajamas to take it all in. Any other time, I’m not a morning lark. :)

    August 29, 2013 at 23:58

  37. Snap. As you know, I also do mad woman in dressingown with camera dances in the dawn. It is such a magical time of day. Serenity and beauty. Which is exactly what you have given me today with your stunning images. Thank you.

    August 30, 2013 at 00:57

  38. Wow, gorgeous skies and reflections. What a sight to wake up too, you do have a lovely view. Have a happy weekend!

  66. Lovely photos. We are fast approaching the days when my walks to work areas the sun comes up. I mourn the end of summer but I do love the beautiful dawn skies so I guess there’s an upside to everything. :)

    August 31, 2013 at 00:16

  67. Al

    Lovely photos. We had skies like that a couple of mornings ago but I was in the car on the way to work so didn’t get any shots (and I didn’t have a lake in my view either).
