Looking at the Sky on Friday - 48

I’m so glad there’s a meme like Looking at the Sky on Friday, because it means all the time I spend looking at the sky, and taking pictures of it, has a purpose! Click the badge for more info.

My mornings have been getting brighter and brighter.  I get up every morning at 5:45 and go for a 2 mile walk, and all winter long I’m walking in the dark.  Hey, I’d rather walk in the dark than rely on fat burners, so I do it, but I really appreciate it when the days start getting longer.  I get to enjoy the sunrise instead of a dark, star-filled sky.

Unfortunately, Daylight Saving Time is scheduled to start next weekend, which means my mornings are going to be a little darker again, at least for a while.  I enjoy the stars, too, but I’m really ready for some light.

If you enjoy skies as much as I do, be sure to check out Looking at the Sky on Friday.


  1. Well, the change in time makes the early morning darker for a while - yet the possibilities seem endless after a day of work and it is dark at 7:00 - the winter commutes in the dark do get a bit old. By July, the birds will be chirping at 4:40 AM, as the light breaks. I'd rather navigate by the sun instead of the stars...

  2. As the poet said, "if eyes are made for seeing, then beauty is it's own excuse for being." And that's a beautiful shot.

  3. What a lovely sunrise, a welcome change I'm sure to the dark of night. Daylight savings shouldn't rob you of them for too long. ~ Calico Contemplations

  4. Such lovely wispy sky. Thanks for stopping by, yes the water over there is warmer than the east coast.

  5. How does Frost create a sense of isolation and seclusion through the use of diction and sentence structure in Acquainted with the Night?
