The Color of Morning * Sunrise Imperial Style

This morning was just another of those sunrises that you want
to put in a bottle and save for that special day when you need
a pick-me-up.

It all began like this...

Then the colors progressed

I grabbed a hot cup of Java, a couple of lenses,
and out into the cool quiet morning I went to enjoy the
mornings colorful light show.

How many colors are in a sunrise?

Above and below - the subtle changes a few minutes can make.

The colors danced off the textures of the cloud cover.
(kind of like Kate at the campfire last night)

If the colors didn't suit you - just wait a few minutes.

Blues, greens, reds, oranges...

These photos are all presented in the order that they appeared.

Just before the sun broke thru...
It seemed as if we had gone full circle and the sky looked similar
to how it was when I first started shooting 40 minutes or so, earlier.

Hope you enjoy.
