Sunrise, two-for-one

A couple of mornings ago I was awakened by hungry cats, and upon making my way to the kitchen I noticed a strong glow from the east: a particularly nice sunrise!

So I grabbed the camera and took a few shots.


This single frame doesn't really capture how glowing and beautiful the sky was, so here's a wider shot made from two frames stitched together:

That gives you a better idea, but for the full effect you need to see the whole sky, and for that you need a full panorama (click to view):

(This image was created by stitching 6 overlapping images together).

That was a pretty nice show for the morning, so I went back to feeding the cats. About 10 minutes later I glanced outside again, and saw a completely different but still impressive scene:

The sun was just barely peeking over the horizon, and the colors of the sky were completely different than they were earlier, yet beautiful!

It was a nice surprise -- two different sunrises on the same morning!

Thanks! This blog sure has given me more practice taking photos. Hopefully I'm improving all the time.
