SkyWatch Friday: Hauntingly Beautiful Sunrises

Mmmmwwwahahahaha! How about some bewitching skies for some pre-Halloween SkyWatching?

If you've ever wondered why Autumn sunrises and sunsets are so vivid, here's an interesting article from The Weather Channel (along with some gorgeous photos) that explains it.

For many more magical skies, visit...

And may everyone in the path of Hurricane Sandy stay safe!


  1. Vincent Price would be proud of you!

  2. Your skies are amazing. Beautiful, dramatic colors and clouds.

  3. The sky shots are gorgeous and interesting about why Autumn sunrise and sunsets are vivid.

    Thanks for visiting mine and I don't know what kind of tree that was in the pool. It was interesting seeing a tree there instead of a fountain.

  4. fascinating vivid colors:) thanks for the visit.

  5. fascinating vivid colors:) thanks for the visit.

  7. Stunning!! And the first two are truly spooky too!!

    Happy Halloween Laurie!

  8. Love all the skies -beautiful captures, Laurie!

  9. Your sunrises have the colours of our sunsets - but whatever the time of day, or year, they are beautiful. Many thanks.

  10. Spooky and enchanting at the same time....nice work, TW ;-).

  11. Such wide open spaces that allow you to fully appreciate those glowing sunrises. I see the snow-capped mountains in the distance. ( I like to ski at Jackson Hole.)

  12. Great skies, and I like the Halloween decor! And thanks so much for your kind comments on my blog... really appreciated!

  13. Terrific shots. Happy sky watching.


  14. Very charming pink skies! Have a great weekend!

  15. Thanks for the scary skies!

    I've been meaning to tell you that both of my adult daughters are now happy, healthy vegan eaters. Next will be me if I can kick the dairy habit.

    Hope all's well in your neck of the woods.

  16. Love those sunsets in wide open spaces... Thanks for sharing.

  17. I read the article on the Weather Channel and that was very interesting. I had never noticed that they were more brilliant but now that I know that they are, it's good to know why!

    I really loved the second photo because of the distance you seem to be capturing. It looks like you photographed the hozizon 50 or more miles away. The farthest I can ever see seems like 100' away!!


Will Blog For Comments. :-)

Thanks for taking the time to leave yours!

  • THE WORLD WITHOUT US ~ Alan Weisman

There is still strong in our society the belief
that animals and the natural world have value
only insofar as they can be converted into revenue.
That nature is a commodity.
And that the American dream is one of unlimited consumption.
There are many of us, on the other hand,
who believe that animals and the natural world
have value by virtue of being alive.
That Nature is a community to which we belong
and to which we owe our lives.
And that the deeper American dream is one of unlimited compassion.
