Breakfast Delayed, for Skywatch

Beez was looking into the kitchen the other morning to see how the homemade muffins were coming along. All he found was an empty room, a half-assembled batter, and a swinging screen door. Stepping out onto the porch, he saw me scampering down the road to get the best shot of this glorious sunrise. 



The differences are subtle, but here is the same scene, a moment later...




By the way, the muffins were delicious.  For skies from all times of the day and night, and from all over the world, be sure to visit Skywatch Friday.

I'd say that was worth the scamper down the road.

Yep, that's one of those drop everything, grab the camera and run sunrises! I love how the sunlight pours in between the mountains.

Definitely one of those drop, grab, run and shoot days and what a glorious way to start your day! And with muffins as well! The colors are breathtaking! Really superb captures, Clairz! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful shots...and I'd have done the same thing! The batter will be there when you get back!

We all have to do whatever it takes to capture the sky when we can. It changes so fast. You did a super job capturing these two versions.

Chores must wait when such a sight presents itself.
As for my Mono Lake sunset, it is spooky. I almost wish I had waited for the end of October to post it.

Quite right too. Leave the muffins to burn but get that shot. Breathtaking.

The sunrise is not waiting. It is changing minute by minute. The dough is waiting patiently.
