Red Sky at Morning

The prompt at MammaKat this week -
4.) Share the best picture you took
last month and explain why it's your favorite.

So here is a shot I thought was amazing. Yes, it is not in perfect focus, but oh my, look at that sky. I love this time of year when I leave for work right before sunrise. This is about a block from my house and I was driving about 40 mph and had to roll the window down to get a shot, find my camera in my purse and take the shot before running the red light. I thought the men on the roof there made the shot even more interesting.

Wow - that's a cool shot. Funny how I didn't see the guys on the roof until I read about them...then looked back at the photo and wondered why I didn't see them in the first look. lol ;)

I found you from the mr. linky at the writers workshop. I've tried to take pictures of that same type of sky and it is really difficult (for me). It's a beautiful picture and a magical time of day. And if your real name is Laura Jayne, I love it. That is a cool name. That's the best name I've seen in a long time.

Amazing sky!

Laura Jayne said...

CDB - Not sure about the better mom part, just a mom who has to get up early to count the beans so she can pay her own bills.

Chris - Thank you.

Denise - I was so busy looking at the sky, finding the camera, driving that I almost missed them myself. Had to do a double take then realized... hey, people on the roof.

blueviolet - Thank you.

Heatherlyn - :) Yes, Laura Jayne is my real name. I have to say, I so appreciate the compliment, I used to hate my middle name as I thought it sounded ordinary, but once I took it on full time, it has made its way into my heart.

Lee - Thank you. :)
