It was an early morning yesterday, I was up before the dawn
(Supertramp, Goodbye Stranger)
I wasn’t really up before the dawn and it wasn’t actually yesterday, I think it was the day before, but let’s pretend for the sake of my awesome quote that no one cares about the details.
Every morning when I get out of bed I pull the curtains aside and look out into the backyard to see what the day looks like. And I guess to see if anything interesting is going on back there. Nothing ever is, but you never know. On this particular day the morning sky was absolutely gorgeous, so I grabbed my phone and took a picture through the bedroom window of….. the garage. Then I woke up a bit more and decided to put a little more effort and some zoom into it and came up with these.
A normal person might have put some clothes and shoes on and actually ventured outside to take clear pictures, but if I were one of those and had done that I think I might have missed it all. In the second last shot which was over to the right, the colors were less intense and soon it all started to lighten like that. By the time I had coffee made the sky was back to its regular faded winter ice blue.
I’m so happy I didn’t miss this! It was amazing. If you’ve never heard of or seen the color called ‘sky blue pink’ before, there you go. This is what it looks like.
