Something I Forgot to Show You, for Skywatch

I forgot to show you this sunrise I saw one morning in March. Its beginning caught my eye through the curtains...


... then the desert sky lit up with fiery colors.


I saw the silvery moon through a pink cloud and was glad that I had awakened in time.


For skies everywhere, at all times of the day and night, please be sure to visit Skywatch Friday.

Always a good feeling when you get up early enough to catch a wonderful sunrise like this. The lace curtain adds a lovely touch.

Oh I'm so glad you remembered this series! That sunrise is absolutely quintessential New Mexico. The lace curtain creates a lovely veiled effect.

Beautiful beautiful NM colors. If only there was more water ;>). (I have I think told you that we would have stayed there but for that!)
