Saturday Snapshot -- Mild January Day

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post on Alyce's blog At Home With Books. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

My friends and I met to run as we do every Saturday morning, beginning in the dark. When we returned, the sun was rising and sending pretty pink colors across the sky.


I love the way the colors reflect in the lake. This looks like it could be an impressionist painting.
In the other direction, the colors were still pretty but not as stark, and looked lovely reflected in the lake.

Every shade of pink! I love sunrises.

The colors are beautiful! I think I'd rather wait and run with the sun up, though. You're very dedicated.

Paulita, that is really lovely. Such a glorious sight early in the morning. I was thinking that this morning as I saw the pink before the sunrise. No lake here though. LOL

Sunsets are the reason I like to crawl out of bed when it's still dark. I don't think anything starts a day off better than a spectacular sunset!

Oh, I love the colors! And in the first one, the "puckery" look does remind me of something an artist might have created.

Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

I was thinking impressionistic paintings too! Very beautiful!

I am impressed Paulita, not only by these great photos, but by the fact that you RUN EVERY SATURDAY MORNING.
That is impressive. Good for you.

Pretty. It's been an amazing winter so far, very mild and almost enjoyable. We had a sunset last night similar to that. The pinks are so vibrant.

One of the benefits of waking up and going out early-the full-colored greetings of dawn.
