Sky Watch Friday

Given the current temperatures here, and probably in most of the northern hemisphere, I thought a warmer scene might be welcome today. I know what you're thinking. I've got it backward, right? Well, yeah I do if you're thinking of Fiddler on the Roof, but stay with me okay? I thought it fitting to post a sunset photo to represent the year we've just closed out and a sunrise to represent the one we're just beginning. So it's not backward after all, is it?
Emerald Isle (the island), like much of the Crystal Coast actually faces South-Southeast so the shoreline runs roughly east to west. Which means that sunrise or sunset, you're going to get the sun on the ocean horizon. Cool, eh?

Thanks Mojo for directing me towards Mimi's blog. She seems quite expressive.

Your photos are perfect to end and begin a new year with. I look forward to seeing more of your views in life in the year to come. Enjoy the Moment.

Two absolutely super shots, I love the green in the sky of the second and that it is just a tad more atmosheric.

Both shots are truly amazing. I so much love that open sea. The sunrise though just takes the bisquit with those wonderful soft tones. Lovely, lovely, lovely...
