The pink side of dawn

Sunrise, Astoria, Oregon The other morning (January 10, 2010) when we were all riveted by the amazing orange and peach sunrise colors to the east, the sky and riverscape to the north were equally compelling, if more subtle. In fact, the image to the north first made me aware that this dawn was particularly incredible. The water was pink, the sky was pink, even the air was pink. Then someone said I should look out the east window. Later that day, on Facebook and in City Daily Photo blogs, I saw pictures of the wonderful morning sky from other Astorians as well as people farther afield in the Pacific Northwest. It had been a sunrise to remember.

The radio tower broadcasts five stations, transmitted through the building where I'm standing to take the photo. These are the kind folks who feature Astoria, Oregon, Daily Photo on one of their station web sites, KKEE 1230.

When I became such a night owl, I don't know (possibly when I started blogging), but I was grateful to be up early on January 10th, and I made a New Year's Resolution to see dawn much more often. Like most good New Year's Resolutions, this one is already broken, but fortunately there are many more days in the year ahead.

Gorgeous colors, I never had such a luck. Maybe it's because I oversleep too often: flexible time at work encourage my morning laziness.

It really was beautiful wasn't it? And, after the windstorm we had last night, I was surprised how nice it turned out today.

Maybe a louder alarm clock?? ;-)
