Red sky at morning ...

The day's grey with splatterings and splashings of rain. The chimes sing in the breeze.

I should've known we wouldn't have another sun shiny day like we've been having for the past days. ... the sunrise was glorious.

Red sky at morning, sailor take warning.

... There are white caps on the Bay. The rain whips against the windows.

Click on the thumbnail for the morning shots.

Got out on the deck about 6:30a because I could tell the sunrise would be marvelous. The shots were taken with a Nikon CoolPix 5600. The first thirteen were taken with a tripod, but that hampered the shot taking, so I ditched the tripod. The first twenty-seven shots taken with "scene" set at dusk/dawn. Next five taken with "scene" set at "museum," which means that pressing the "take a picture" button takes a series of pictures at once and then chooses the one with the least jiggle.

The true color of dawn was somewhere between the two variants.

I especially liked this one: Wanderlust.

The day began beautiful and marvelous and continues on despite the white caps, grey skies and drizzle. It's a wonder anyone wants to live here. This ol' city is always so grey and foggy and cold.
