Sunrise, Sunrise

Our mornings and evenings have been surprisingly clear these last couple of weeks.  That's not to say that it hasn't still dumped rain on us every single day (because it has).  But, we've been gifted with some pretty beautiful skies.  I've noticed the clear skies mostly around sunrise and sunset, which is now happening at 7:30am and 3:50pm.  It's only a matter of time before we're down to a whopping six hours of daylight.  Woo-hoo.

I have been lucky enough to snap pictures of a couple of these incredible sunrises over the last weeks.  I think you'll all enjoy them…they are seriously spectacular.  And, to make it MORE awesome, none of the pictures have been edited and they all retain their original colors and beauty.  Enjoy :) 

And, then there is my personal favorite….

Cody was outside walking the dog when he spotted this beautiful sunrise.  He hurried back inside, dragged me out of bed, and insisted that I make an appearance in the front yard.  It was totally worth it. 

Do you ever watch sunrise?
Which do you prefer, sunrise or sunset?
