Sunrise Saturday

One day recently, I woke up to a glow on the eastern horizon, and I knew that sunrise would be special. Look at the orange sky to the east with the orange reflected in a pond down on the ground. This was before the sun came over the horizon.

And, ah, the alpenglow over the mountains. It's such an amazing sight!

Then, the sun made its appearance. I watched in awe.

As some of you know, I have a drone that I can send straight up over my house to get a 360° view when the sky is so special. That's what is in the video below. You can watch it here or at Youtube. I hope that it gives you a peaceful feeling at the start of your weekend.

Happy Saturday.


  1. you truly live in a little piece of heaven. sunrise is my favorite time of the day... maybe I will get bob the drone he wants so I can take pics above our house, of course ours would have a thousand roof tops, but it is still beautiful. amazing video

  2. Hugh has had his drone in a lot of use this last week as the massive, HUGE trees were felled on the land next to us. Great jubilation as each one fell with a mighty crash. Love the view from yours, snow in the distance, and sky in morning mode. There is something so special about mountains, solitude, and peace before the day starts.

  3. Peace and calm. Those morning sunrises with their spectacular color are one of the best ways to wake up naturally. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Beautiful. We haven't seen the sun for a few days.
