Well, from my last photo of Morning Serenity to this, what a difference eh? Same exact location but what a difference. The sky looked like it was literally on fire. I've done nothing to the photo other than resizing and sharpening it up after such and adding a modest border. The day I took this , we had winds come up to 90kms an hour. I do believe the Red Sky in the Morning really does mean something!

Thanks for your visit to my gallery and your comments on my photos. Have a great day ( also hope your not getting sick of my view!)

Hi Donna,

A nice image of the colorful sunrise which is giving special colors to the sky and a set of shadows to rest of the photo. The point of view is giving depth to the picture. Well done, have a nice day.


Hi Donna,
This one is even more impressive than the previous one!
The high contrast on the sky looks terrific as visual impact, and that reds really stand out form the dark.
Is so beautiful the silhouettes of the trees and the composition made with it.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hi Donna,
Tones of colors are amazing in this beautiful picture! I like this contrast a lot. This sky is on fire! Greetings,

Hello Donna,
I remember a traditional weather forcast: 'Red in the morning, sailor's warning'
That's what this fine sunrise reminds me of! Superb dramatic colours and once again great composition with your tree.
Thanks for sharing this one: I hope it didn't lead to a storm! We had one here by the Baltic and a few roofs got damaged.

Hello Donna,
This is really strong colours for January sunrise, but frankly they occur here too from time to time, I cannot recall they did during winter twenty years ago...
A well composed presentation, and the sky reflects so nice...
Pablo -

Hi Donna.
The sky, its coloration is really amazing. I like that you managed to reflect and dark blue colour tones of the sky too. As usual for your landscape pictures the POV is superb and nearest for you trees are looked very nice as a frame for this charming picture. Bravo and my compliments.
