This morning I took the dogs for a walk and one of the most beautiful sunrises I have seen awaited. This is one time that the picture fell far short of reality. Part of it is that the camera can only capture so much of the sky, so you don't see the dark blue fading to light blue then to the oranges and yellows of the new day. Also, Mt. Rainer cast a shadow into the clouds, which I have never seen before. It was nice enough to call my neighbor who also takes pictures and we'll have to see who took the best. Here are a couple that I took. They are mostly the same thing, but I was very blessed. How can you not feel exhilarated and ready to go to work after the Lord puts on such a show?

After about 15 minutes, the glory was gone, but you can still see the looming shadow.


  1. That was a beautiful sunrise yesterday. I posted a similar picture on FB yesterday. We can see part of Mt Rainer from our back deck, but you have an even better view. That's the type of thing that makes living here great.

  2. I love the progression of the pictures. I do miss the mountain. Beautiful!
