Welcome to My Sky Watch Photos

I hope you get some pleasure from seeing the beautiful Sanibel sky. Every sunrise and sunset is different. On rainy days we usually see clouds with the sun shinning behind them and many times a rainbow.

Sunrise on the Gulf

This is one of my favorite sunrise pictures taken from Sanibel Island Lighthouse Beach. It was taken about 3 months ago.

Greetings from Seattle.
The sea always provides us with drama in the sky.
Lovely.

I agree - sunrises can be as beautiful as sunsets, I just don't always get up early enough to capture them. My pictures are of a mackerel sky before the storm. I invite you to come see. - Margy

You have managed to catch the end of "magic hour" perfectly. The colours are so special at this time and are so fleeting.
Beautiful!
