SkyWatch Friday

 
Posted by Picasa



This is the same view of the Atlantic Ocean in Jacksonville Beach that I posted this past Wednesday. This picture was taken just after sunrise. If you enlarge the picture, you can see a ship way out there on the horizon. To see more beautiful skies from around the world, please visit SkyWatch Friday.

Wonderful view and I see the ship. It makes me wonder where they are going. Outstanding photo!

Clytie said...

It looks just like a painting! The sky colors are beautiful, the waves look soft as silk. Wonderful picture!

Jacob said...

Couldn't sleep, heh?

Very nice, Lois...lovely sunrise. But you did have to get up pretty early to catch it, right?

Janie said...

Beautiful shot! How fun to see the ship, too. It's just visible in the enlargement.

Lois said...

Jacob, I was sleeping with my 5 year old grandson and he wakes up early anyway, but he got me up extra early because he knew the beach was just outside our window!

Pam said...

The colors in this beautiful sky are stunning.
I hope you have a delightful weekend. Lois
Maybe a little birdy will fly by for a visit :D

I am so used to sunsets into the ocean that it did not register that this was a SUNRISE until I read your note above. Your grandson must be a real cutie. He did well to wake you up for that scene.
Thank you for your comments on my 'graduate'. He was the only one in a white sport-coat.

I like the stillness of the sea, the soft glide of the tender waves to the shore. The sweet compliment of the mellow sunrise...adds the splendour to your skywatch friday treat.
