S is for Sunrise/Sunset

 S is for Sunrise and Sunset. (Reminds me a little of a song...)

I have a friend/acquaintance nearby who takes sunrise photos at Lake Ontario almost every morning. I am amazed at the variety of shapes and colors that one location can produce. Ours is an ever changing world and I often like to imagine God wielding a giant paintbrush, each morning splashing the sky with different hues.

From the little marina nestled in the cove to the expanse of open water stretching north east across the lake to where the sun rises, all is beauty. We have much to be grateful for.

The last few days have produced some magnificent sunset photos as well. There is nothing quite like a large body of water to create sunsets full of wonder. I really should be spending more time at the lake. My camera isn't equipped, nor do I have the knowledge, to take pictures like these, but my eyes can drink it in and that is a pretty special gift too.

I totally missed the letter R last week. Must have been distracted or something. So my post for last week went up yesterday. It's here.

  1. What a sensational post about God's beauty! I have a series of shots I took down by the river around 7pm on October 1st one day! It was incredible to watch the changing colours - from blue to indigo to orange and red, etc. Thanks for sharing this.

    Linda :o)

  4. That song you refer to is from my 2nd favorite musical ever.

  5. Never saw a sunset/sunrise that I didn't love! Amazing that God gives us those each day...lovely!

  6. Fabulous colors here, Martha. Your friend is very talented, but I think you could capture something amazing if you were to show up at the lake every morning. Sounds arduous to me, as I'm not a morning person, but the!
