Sunrise and Sunset

It's not often I see a sunrise, but with trouble sleeping yesterday I decided to head out and see if enough of the clouds might part to take some cool photos. I was glad I did, as it turned out to be pretty beautiful. As I drove to the south end of the island, there were intermittent cloud bursts, while other areas were still completely dry. Before the sun even came over the horizon you could see some of the cloud bursts over Griffin Bay:


Here's another shot after the sun came up:


It was bright and sunny during the day, but I didn't take any more photos until sunset, which was just as spectacular:


Due to some stuff I barely understand about color managed web browsers and photo color profiles, the color of oranges, reds, and pinks never look quite as vibrant as in my photo programs, but you can imagine the scene as I stood there overlooking the sunset with all the colors of the sky reflected in the pond below it:

Sunrise, sunset, and another day passes. I'm glad you were able to capture such picturesque moments amidst your sleepless nights. I love being up before dawn. These photos capture that moment well. Thanks.

PS A big glass of red wine is most benificial for a restful night. Sweet dreams.
