A Year on Clear Lake-Feb 01, 2013

It’s Double Good, Double Good – February 1, 2013

It’s been a while since I’ve had the opportunity to capture an incredible, outstanding, breathtaking, knock your crazy socks off sunrise. January was a month of gray skies and foggy, misty mornings–each beautiful in their own right. But the new month has begun with a clear morning and just enough clouds to spice up the dawn. This day’s starter certainly qualified as an  OMG-Sweetie-You’ve-Got-To-Come-See-This kind of sunrise.

It dawns on me (no pun intended) what is so uniquely special about a lake sunrise. Like the old Doublemint gum commercial, “Double your pleasure. Double your fun. It’s double good.”  Not only is the sky filled with rich colors morphing across the canvas, but the lake lights up with a muted reflection of the sky’s unfolding splendor. No wonder it’s so magnificent. It’s two sunrises in one.Sunrise

I am awed, and humbled by this incredible gift out my back door, and honored to be able to share its treasures. What a wondrous world we live in.
