Morning Sky

I don't usually get up early enough for a sunrise, but the other night I had a sleep study.  They wake you up at 6 a.m. and I was on my way home as the sun was coming up.


I thought I would try it in Black and White.

Thanks for stopping.  Have a great weekend.
Until next time.

So you had a sleep study...am very tempted to do that myself. May solve my sleep issues, altho it has been a wee bit better lately. Your morning sunrise is lovely, now go home and take a nap!!

Mari said...

What a beautiful sunrise! Hope your sleep study turned out well.

Maple Lane said...

Very pretty sunrise! My husband has many sleep disorders and has had many sleep studies. I pray that the study will give you the answers you need to feel better.

What a rich, beautiful sky and I love black and white images. Stunning!

Rita said...

What an amazing sunrise.

I have been using a C-Pap machine for about fifteen years now. The best thing I ever did was my first sleep study. I now keep a extra machine so I have a spare for travel and a back-up in case of failure. Would never want to sleep without mine.

That is really a lovely way to start a morning... What a beautiful place.

Kerri said...

Sunrise is my favorite time of day! This is Beautiful!

The sunrise is beautiful, color & b&w both... much different feels for each, but oh how beautiful =)

That first shot is glorious!
Hope the study went well for you.

I had one of them years ago. geeze, they had me hooked up. Then the bill came and the insurance was not very generous. Hope yours had a positive outcome. Yes, they do get you up and out early, but you were able to capture a great picture. So pretty and peaceful. genie

Linda said...

That was a gorgeous shot! Like the color one better - more dramatic...but even the B&W version is a keeper!

Nefertiti said...

Superbe !

Rowen said...

Gorgeous. Have to say I prefer it in colour though :)

Really nice sunrise, Barb -- I would have never thought to feature it in black and white, but it's lovely too.

Thank you for sharing with us at Your Sunday Best.

Beth said...

The photos are beautiful! I had a couple of those sleep studies before I was diagnosed with sleep apnea. I hope that it turns out ok for you.

andrea@townandprairie said...

Lovely, Barb! Thank you also for providing me with some new inspiration and ideas for linkies. I feel somewhat exhausted in my photographic arena right now and need to try other subjects before I get totally burned out. You've been an inspiration! Your sunrise is beautiful!

Annmarie Pipa said...

Ah... the lovely 6am wake up of sleep studies!!! I have had numerous sleep studies myself. I hope you got some answers.

I love B&W photography, but in this case the color version is by far the best. I'd love to be able to have my 1st cup of coffee by this view. Blessings!

Michelle said...

I love the color, but the back and white is GORGEOUS.
