7:45 a.m.

Bright Orange Sunrise, Astoria, Oregon After days of rain and gray skies, Mother Nature treated us to this incredible sunrise. I took the photo from right outside my shop on the River Walk. The yellowish lights on the left (you may have to click to enlarge it) are the lights of the Maritime Museum. The white lights to the right are headlights on Marine Drive. The orange spot in front is reflected sky in a rain puddle. We usually get some stunning skies in January and February, and I was beginning to wonder if they'd happen at all this year.

I received e-mail about yesterday's post from Karen Schultz, who grew up in that neighborhood. I thought the amusing story and the history would be a wonderful addition to this blog so, with her permission, I've added it to the text. Go ahead and check it out! I'll have more stories from Karen in upcoming editions. I was going to post one today, but the sun rose and I coudn't resist today's colorful image.

The sunrise was extra gorgeous this morning here too. Same sky sorta. I didn't get a good shot as I was on the road with the Grandboys. Sometimes that happens. Usually I will pull over but not this morning but we sure enjoyed it.

Super shot. MB

Sheryl, I had the dogs out at about seven this morning I saw the beginning of this sunrise, but unfortunately didn't get the chance to photograph it. I'm glad you were able to. Very nice shot here. Oh, and thanks for sharing that sunrise with us. :-)

I loved the sunrise pix and looked at some earlier ones. You humble me as a photographer that´s all I can say. Also it is strange seeing Astoria right now. It is so simple and clean and not hot!

I tolerate sunrises much more than sunsets and this is really something spectacular. Gorgeous image!

It would be hard to beat this for a sunrise, Sheryl! My question, though, is what were you doing up at such an ungodly hour? ;-)

Thank goodness you were up!
