Morning sky

Are you familiar with the old saying, Red sky in morning, sailors take warning. Red sky at night, sailor's delight? I've heard it all my life.

But I wonder what the sailor should do when the morning sky is cobalt blue (according to color charts) and low clouds highlighted by the rising sun is the color of orange sherbet. And that is topped off by a half moon? 

That's what crossed my mind this morning when stepping onto the back deck. Not being a sailor, I'm  not sure if I have a say in the matter, but I was amazed.

  2. Beautiful, but take warning.

  3. My, that's a beautiful sky. If I was a sailor, I would take double warning.
    Have a great day.

  4. Beautiful shot! Im a sucker for sunsets and cotton candy skies.

  5. What a beautiful day coming your way! I think that's what I'd say! We have clouds and more clouds - rain for sure coming our way!

  6. Imma tell you this sailor would have just enjoyed the view. Nothing like nature sowing off contrasts in beauty!
    Nice catch!

  7. Rick, this sky is one of the best... I love these colors xox

  8. I also heard that expression when I was growing up and repeat it myself perhaps more than I should. Maybe the sky you saw in the morning means to be sure you take a picture of this one because you may never see such a sight again.

  9. This is stunning! I love his picture but 10 to 1 this is probably a warning.

  10. Morning is my favorite time of day and I often wake early to watch the sun come up. Beautiful picture.
