rosy** colored dawn


Behold this morning's sky as the sun rose above the lake near us. Pink was the color today!

Rosy comes from the Latin 'roseus' meaning rosy or pink. Incidentally the poet Lucretius used rosy to describe the dawn in his six book epic On the Nature of Things [De Rerum Natura] written in the first century BC. 


I'm happy to include this Minnesota dawn with all the other skies posted at Skywatch Friday.

Sunrises and sunsets are always so much fun to photograph!

On a road trip and finally am in a place with wifi, so I am temporarily back to enjoy your blog!! St. Augustine was great and Savannah is awesome. Onward to Charleston after Easter Sunday!

May you and your family enjoy both Passover and Easter!!

Very pretty skies~

Would you consider removing word verification...it was suggested to me several weeks ago and it is still safe and secure and is so much easier for people desiring to leave comments.

Happy Easter~
