Sunrise This Morning

Are you tired of Mt. Hood yet? Sunrises are much more dramatic in the summertime when the sun rises farther north, but then I would have to get much earlier than I would like. This is the view this morning at 7:22 a.m.



I want to "collect" some more of the little churches near our farm too. I took a different way to work this morning to catch the early light on this one, which is about 3 miles up the road to the north of us. We have actually attended services here when we didn't have time to make it to our regular church.



I love what the early morning light does to a photograph, and isn't that blue sky something. It is a VERY rare sight around here this time of year. Usually.

I was going to include a detail shot of the lovely scroll work at the base of the steeple, but I thought it would be unkind to feature the bird doo that has accumulated over the winter...

I love old country churches, and that one is charming, even if it does have bird dooey on it-LOL!
Love your Mt. Hood sunrises. I don't think I would ever tire of your Mt.Hood sunrise photos.

These are probably my favorite photos of all you've done this month. The sunrise is beautiful and the church has a simple charm that I love! GOOD ONES!

you're still up way too early for me... I'm a notoriously poor sleeper and some mornings can hardly drag myself out by 8:30 or 9...

I like old books and reading them gives me insight into human nature.
