Over the years I've shared a lot of photos of beautiful Oklahoma skies. I've usually concentrated on the sunsets, beautiful displays of color and light. As the sun drops behind the ridge, often with storm clouds or sometimes smoke in the air, the sky can be breathtaking. The sun sets as I do the evening chores, and a dramatic sunset is often one of the last things I see as I finish up and go back inside.
But in the past couple of years I've rediscovered sunrises. Sometimes the sky is bland, blue and cloudless, but other mornings the light is amazing and ever-changing as the sun climbs. On those mornings I'm often standing on the porch, barefoot and shivering in the morning chill, taking photos of the new day before the perfect light disappears. Timing is everything; in the time it would take to find shoes and a jacket, the moment would be gone.
I love watching the changing sky as the sun reaches toward the horizon. Minute by minute the color changes.
Sometimes sunbeams spread from the horizon to the heavens.
