Almost A Sunrise

Georgian Bay
 
sharing with...
 
where you share 5 random facts about you, your day,
your pets, your kids, whatever!

1. I am not a morning person, I have never seen the sun rise.
2. On several occasions, I have set the alarm to ring a half an hour before sunrise, so I can get photos.
3. I always turn the alarm off sometime during the night.
4. This year at our summer cottage, just before sunrise, I got up early (a trip to the loo).
5. I snapped one photo, and went back to bed.

Well, it's a beautiful shot! I'm not a morning person either. That's why I shoot a lot of sunsets. :)

Worth getting up for! It's beautiful! I'm not a morning person either so I don't have many sunrise shots.

Now you know what you have been missing, Karen. I get out so early that I miss seeing the sunrises from our back patio!

Breathtakingly beautiful sunrise.

Oh, that shot says romance and cuddling under the covers to me. Sigh!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

The cloud formations are so dreamy over the water -- tranquil.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Well you made that one shot count. Your sky is full of possibilities and optimism.

Al said...

I love this time of day, before everything gets going, the peace and quiet. I frequently see sunrises, by this year it can already be dark when I leave for work.

Al said...

And no, I was not lying on the ground for my recent photo, but I did use a wide-angle lens to exaggerate the perspective and trees' height.

Elephant's Child said...

It is truly beautiful - and I think you can claim it as a sunrise...

Gemma Wiseman said...

Romantic brushes of pink in these lovely skies.

ladyfi said...

Beth @ E. Lizard Breath Speaks said...

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

I have been a morning person all my life -- due to work situations mostly. Getting up at 4 am makes for a long day and naps are often taken in the afternoon to rejuvenate. :)

Thanks so much for sharing a little more about yourself Karen. xo

Brandi said...

Beautiful! How does that not inspire you to see more sunsets?? :)

Brandi said...

Sunrises...sorry!

Snap said...

Ranten said...

thomas said...

Buttons said...

Oh Karen all I can say is thank goodness for "Trip to the LOO my darlin'" :) Hug B

rayfamily said...

I love that you set the alarm for sunrise! I am always up early and many times I will see a glow against the kitchen wall, and grab my camera and head outside. Lovely photo!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

...and I LOVE sunrises!! Mornings are just the best time of day for me. So quiet, so peaceful. :o)

I'm new to Random 5 this week, and thought I'd try and get the gist of it all by paying you a visit!! Happy weekend.

Sharon Wagner said...

I'm the other way. I never see midnight. Yawn.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Lol! I'm a morning person but go to bed around nine.

Maggid said...

Out of necessity - i have learned to do morning - BUT, there were many years I saw the sunrise because i was on my way home to bed . . (performing artist - very often super-night people.)

I SO "get it."

yeah, I'd like chickens, too . . my neighbors have No Imagination . . .

love & love to you!

Willow said...

Super , beautiful ~ totally deserving of an early morning eye open ! We have roosters so I AM a morning person , like it or not , haha . Actually I am a morning person so it works for me ... just need my coffee.

Veronica Roth said...

Lol, it's all good. I used to figure skate so had to be up and on the ice by 7am for 14 years. Not being able to sleep in is a curse. Sunrises are overrated. :)

Lynne said...

Hula La said...

Great shot! When I first met my husband, we took a cross country trip from San Diego where we watched the sunset. The following week we were in Bar Harbor Maine watching the sunrise! Glorious! And now, living in the northeast, I take advantage of the sunrise, for then I know that all is right with the world! Aloha

Terri Buster said...

Gorgeous color!

Sandy Carlson said...

I love this shot. I am a morning person, but I am a night person, too. I could live without the afternoons...
