06.01.2019 Two Sunrises…One Day

5:45 am.

The prospects did not look promising as I pulled into the New Salem Overlook this morning.  Gray sky above the horizon with no sign of any color or individual clouds. But it seemed possible that the sun might show through the cloud bank if it was thin enough and it was and it did.

6:15 am.

Once the sun reached a higher point, I started to think of other places to visit and as I drove along Route 122 decided to take a look at Branch Bridge Road. Upon reaching the opening by the southern edge of Lake Rohunta I could see the orange ball through the trees on the opposite end and thought it might work out.

It wasn’t all for the morning but had it been that would have been more than enough.  🙂

  1. I’m glad you succeeded—and twice at that—in spite of the unlikely prospects you faced.

    As soon as I saw that first photo, I remembered the song from way-back-when called “Red Rubber Ball.” That’s when things got interesting. When I went to YouTube to pick up a video of the song, I saw Simon and Garfunkle among the choices. I couldn’t figure out why — it didn’t seem like something they’d cover. In fact, the song was written by Paul Simon, but the pair never recorded it, and the Cyrkle made it famous. So — here’s a bouncy little tribute to your red morning sun!

    Beyond all that, I really like the second photo. For whatever reason, that sunburst is my favorite of all you’ve done.

    • Ha! Art says “among the 23 or 24 songs Paul has written”. In hindsight a bit of an understatement.
      I liked the composition because the sun appeared to be peeking over the trees and under the near tree’s branches. More interesting, I think, than just a sun over the horizon. Thanks, Linda.
