Morning mist in Maine

This was sunrise this morning in Rockport, Maine.... at 6:10 a.m. which is a time I never rise!  But the light coming into the bedroom was glowing so beautifully, I had to get up and look out across the harbor.  I knew I only seconds to run downstairs (which at my age, one does not run down stairs!) to grab my camera and get as many shots as I could.  Within a minute, the golden glow was gone and I had hoped I had gotten at least one good shot.  And I did!  Straight out of the Camera ... the view didn't need any help with its beauty.

Of course, I do need help with my beauty, so I crawled back into bed to grab a few more winks of sleep.  Hope you have a great Labor Day, my friends.

What a lovely sunrise that I think was worth running down the stairs to see no matter what your age or speed! :-) I hope you're enjoying your day!!

Such a glorious, golden way to begin the day -- any day!! Terrific capture, Reena! Yep, I don't run up or down stairs anymore -- in fact I'm doing good to get up and down at all!! Thank goodness for an elevator in the building!! Hope you have a lovely Labor Day! Enjoy!!

This really is a glorious shot. Perhaps I need to pay attention when the early morning light comes crawling round the edge of the curtains into my room.

I remember waking up to a morning just like this - one that had me running for my camera (if you want to call it running, that is). I absolutely adore this image, Reena. Perfect just the way it is.

Holy moly Reena - looks like nature is on fire. So spectacular...
I often wonder what I miss with my camera because I'm not an early riser!
This image is glorious.

We never got out of our Navy years habit of getting up extra early. I love it. We do get to bed rather early... But it's dark then, so there's no missed photo ops.

Really stunning rising. This time of year has the dandiest light, especially along the coast.

It almost seems so unreal. Gorgeous mix of mist/fog/color...a Folgers moment:)

Oh so pretty! I can not wait to move out to country and be able to take unobstructed pics from my window or front porch. Too many houses and power lines around here :)
Hugs from Ohio,
