Thanksgiving Week Sunrises

Lately we've been having some spectacular sunrises so, while I was taking a Thanksgiving week break from blogging and facebooking, I decided to try to get daily photos of the sun coming up from my back deck. Each photo shows what the sky looked like from this same location between 7:30-8a.m.  I found the shots to be varied and delightful:

Sunday, 18th

Monday, 19th

Tuesday, 20th

Wednesday, 21st

Thursday, 22nd

Friday, 23rd

Saturday, 24th

So, there you have it--a week of sunrises.  The week started off with streaks of glorious color, to days of grey light, then soft color returns, ending today with a red gold bank of color against a blue sky by 8:00 a.m. this morning.  I hope you've enjoyed your Thanksgiving week.  As for me, I'm re-charged creatively and plotting some--I hope--interesting photo shoots for December.  Oh, and I forgot to say--glad to be back and I've missed chatting with you.

Each sunrise is so unique and you captured them perfectly! I too am feeling recharged, although I'm still fighting somewhat of a cold. I am looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us!!
