Skywatch Friday


This week for Skywatch Friday I would like to share this photo that I took of a sunrise last winter. I was heading down south to photograph the eagles that had gathered on the Mississippi River when the sun began to rise. The sky turned pink and purple and it looked like a beam of light shining down from heaven. I was hoping to get to a good location to take a picture, like perhaps Lake Peppin, but decided that I probably did not have enough time. So I just pulled over at an open farm field at took the pic from the side of the road.

Gorgeous - looks as if a rocket has started right in the middle!

Good thing you stopped. We let the good ones go by sometime while we think we are looking for the perfect spot to photograph it from.

It does look more like a rocket taking off or an atomic blast gone wrong. Fantastic shot!
