Skywatch Friday: Dawn at Broadway Park

When I saw the pink-tinged clouds this morning, I piled on the layers and ran down to Broadway Park for some sunrise pictures. Dogs were rushing after the balls their people were throwing for them. I hovered at the edge, trying to dodge tennis balls, trying to not get run over by enthusiastic retrievers, and trying to stay warm in the 23-degree morning. My fingertips were starting to freeze after about thirty minutes in the cold, so I didn't quite make it to actual sunrise, but I did get some pretty shots anyway. Plus, I made some new doggie friends, and isn't that even better?

Happy Last Day of 2010!

P.S. Look, Chad! I didn't use "sunset" mode!

Skywatch Friday


  1. Is there a 'sunset' mode? I like your picture and the street lamps.
    I did make it to sunrise---gorgeous--reds and oranges and yellows.
    I took my pics at 7:45 looking south and east. MB

  2. It was a beautiful sunrise. I was driving west and passed a women standing on the side of the road taking photos to the east, once I figured out she wasn't aiming at me, I looked in my rear view to gorgeous colors and found a spot to pull over and snap a few! Happy New Year!

  3. Wonderful photo and post. Thanks for sharing. If you've got a moment, please to see my special New Year's Eve post at Portland Oregon Daily Photo.
