A Dawn's Early Light......


This mosaic represents changes in my garden and a magnificent sky.  Monday morning, my husband woke me at 5:30 am to show me the stunning yellow sky.  Half-awake, I stumbled to the window, gasped, and grabbed my camera.  In my bathrobe, I captured incredible skies as a storm came rolling in, but not before I managed a few shots of incredulous glory.  Now that's the way to start a day!!!

The photos are gorgeous. I'm glad to hear that the storm clouds didn't amount to anything though.

Very nice pictures! Amazing views!
Thanks so much for sharing! I was wondering how you do the blocked pictures like that? I am new to the blogging world and am not sure how to do that! If you can, could you lead me in the direction of how I can learn to do that??
Thanks so much!
Happy Gardening

That is a dramatic looking sky. Such amazing colour. Terrific mosaics and thank goodness your husband woke you up, so we can all share the view.

You did capture a beautiful dawn. I don't think I would get upset either if my husband woke me up that early to see that beautiful site. :)

How beautiful! I love taking photos of the sky at sunset (I don't get up early!) Your mosaic is a perfect blend of photos! ♥

Riet said...

Very nice collages. I love those beautiful coloured skies and you were lucky to be up so early.

Lorrie said...

What a gorgeous mosaic. It's true that the sky is often at its most dramatic just before a storm. How wonderful that you captured these.

shirley said...

I love watching the morning skies, just because of the glorious colors - your captures are beautiful. I love the pictures of your garden, too.

My Little Home and Garden said...

I enjoyed looking at your "skyscapes". The colours and cloud patterns are really dramatic. The storm clouds finally rolled in here, this morning, and provided a much needed downpour! Thank you for visiting my blog.

Marianne C. said...

What a way to wake up, indeed! Gorgeous photos...isn't it amazing to think that all of that beauty changes within seconds. I'm glad you were able to 'freeze' it in time.

Your mosaic is stunning.

Have a wonderful day,
Marianne

What great shots! They could be illustrations of 'a storm rolling in' for an elementary school text.
