SkyWatch Friday: Sunrise to Sunset

For this week, I decided to take one day from sunrise to sunset.

I went out early on this particular day to help out the birds because it was so cold.

I was rewarded with a beautiful sunrise.

I've noticed that sunrise in the winter tends to be more colorful than sunset which is the opposite of how it is here in the summer.

Even picking one day to feature this week, I had trouble narrowing down the shots.

I was working from home and took a break to walk at the lake near my house.

The sky was very dynamic.

 There were many good reflections in the lake.

I've used other shots from this walk for other posts this week so I hope these shots aren't too similar to ones I've already used.

 I like the barren ground on the hills below in contrast to the sky. There are so many evergreens that many of the trees are green year round.

The remaining shots were taken at sunset.

I like the way the clouds and contrails give a sense of movement above.

 At the end of the sunset the sky was colored with pastels.
