All around the compass

Lynn and I went out for breakfast this morning.  We were up early and in the car right before sunrise.  She was driving.

I checked out the sky (there was just a touch of color in the east) and said “It doesn’t look like much of a sunrise.  I’m glad I went to Orlando Wetlands Park yesterday.”

Just a few minutes later, I had to ask her to pull over so I could make this photo:

Sunrise, grass and trees

3 minutes after that, the sky to the east looked like this:

Sunrise over Lake Jesup

And just a little while later, all around the compass, the sky showed at least a hint of color. This morning was one of the best sunrise shows I’ve ever seen.  I hope you saw it too.

By the way, don’t bother asking me whether the sunrise will be any good.  And always keep a camera in your pocket.
