Skywatch Friday - More from the Beach

I couldn't decide which one to post, so you get them both! These are from our recent trip to Cocoa Beach, Florida. I love the beach at sunrise.

Very beautiful.
Isn't it funny to see the sun rise from the ocean when we are used to see it setting in the ocean. Did everything look backwards to you? LOL MB

Wouldn't it be nice to be somewhere warm ... enough of this cold weather !!!

A beautiful sunrise shot with nice color and a wide expanse of sea and sky. The closer version gives us a nice amount of detail. The two work very well together.

Gorgeous and the perfect way to start any day!! Every day as far as I'm concerned! The shots do indeed work really well together, I particularly love the second one -- feel like I'm right there!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Sally!

Brilliant shots. I would get up at the crack of dawn to see a sunrise like this.

Gorgeous capture of the sunrise. I love being up early at the beach to catch scenes like this. Beautiful photos!

Kay L. Davies said...

Oh, yes, difficult decision. The waves breaking onshore in the first photo, or the birds in the second. Both wonderful.
By the way, I keep meaning to tell you how much I love the name "Chicken Dance Ranch" - it makes me smile every time I see it.

That's so pretty the way the sun is obscured by the dark cloud but the colour sneaks out above and below!

TO THE SKY

Sky by day or sky by night,
You are always my delight,
For in blaze or subtle hue,
Sky, my heart belongs to you.
