two sides of the sky

One minute apart looking in opposite directions….

7:34 am, above; 7:35 am, below

Morning in the desert on State Trust land, just north of the White Tank Mountains in northwest Surprise, Arizona, USA.

  1. Nice . . . I should get out early morning again. I used to leave for work at 5:30am to go up Ute Pass; got me lots of beautiful sunrises. Now, I sleep in a bit later.

    • I understand that the sun still rises at its regular times even when we’re retired. I still have that luxury of experience to look forward to, but some of my retired friends tell me it’s true. πŸ™‚

      I do love the mornings out there….

    • I shifted my sleeping habits to being up very late (or early morning, depending on how one looks at it). Unless I sacrifice sleep, sunrises are not something I’ll see often.

      . . . now, if I could be assured of an awesome sunrise, I’d make the effort.

      . . . but there’s no app for that.

  2. I can believe it, what a treat to see. The full moon hanging over that saguaro, with surrounding trees, and the subtle color gradations, so well captured – what a composition that is! You should print and frame it!

    • It certainly is a treat, Lynn…and thank you.

      I have only printed one of my images so far…it was a multi-hued orange sunrise behind a skeleton of an old tree…took it on the way to work in August a couple of years ago. It’s on a large canvas and I think it might be too large…it’s almost overwhelming on the eyes. πŸ˜‰

      • Well, there are other ways to go… πŸ˜‰ I hope you’re doing well, Scott.

  3. Beautiful images, Scott. Love the pink glow (Alpen?) with the moon hanging above it. I bet it was breathtaking to be there.

    • Thank you, Gunta…and while there is that beautiful pink glow, I regret that it’s not likely an Alpen glow, as it’s just the atmosphere and not a reflection of wonderful light on on a compelling mountain. πŸ™‚ And yes, it was a treasure to be there, for sure.

      • I like it when the sky turns pink regardless of what you call it. πŸ˜€

        • Me too…. πŸ™‚
