I know the saying "Red sky in the morning sailors take warning , Red Sky at night, sailors delight!" My grandmother always told me that. I spend 1/2 my life on Lake Champlain. But anyway...I don't know what Red everything means... :) We did have alot of clouds this particular day but no wind to speak of so not a bad day for sailors..not a bad day for me either..:o)

Hi Donna!

Good or bad prediction, it's a marvellous picture with a romantic touch that evokes emotions. It always surprises me that pictures of sunrise or sunset, as we often see them, always captivate my interest. Yours is particularly pleasant for the wonderful colors and the fine composition.

Kind regards


Wouaw Donna
splendid and magic pic, colors and lighting are fantastic,
great point of view, it is another excellent composition,
very well done,

Hi Donna,
beautiful view of the morning,excellent colors and POV.

As I mentioned in my notes today...those who can predict thew weather are newcomers and fools:-) A wonderful shot. Now you have me second guessing and trying to remember pics such as these as a child and young adult. And I am thinking of the baseball game played at Jacobs Field in Cleveland. As I recall there was a storm approaching last night.. You being back memories and raise some weather questions with you combination of old wives tale and wonderful picture....I shall ponder on it.

Magnifiques couleurs avec le reflet dans l'eau.

Hello Donna,
The surface of the water is so silky-crisp, very attractive!
Wonderful colours with promises for the day to come...

Hi Donna

Wow...what an impressive and moody photo!
The amount of drama these similar tones and colors contain and also express here is simply outstanding! Your did so great to catch it!
The composition you managed here is also wonderful - with a very bit of a FG in the lower part, a fascinating reflection of the sky, then those superb tree silhouettes and that sublime sunrize on top.

Bravo and TFS

Stunning colours and light and a really good ccomposition, with just a hint of a foreground. Very beautiful picture and it mush have been a very special moment.

Hi Donna

We have almost the same saying:
Red sky at night; shepherds delight,
Red sky in the morning; shepherds warning

I guess red sky all the time means changeable weather. Wonderful colours and light in this shot. It looks wonderful



Hi Donna,
WOW! That rocks... Awesome colors and beauty. Great Shot!

Hi Donna,
A Nice Ontario's morning. Excellent point of view!


Hola Donna.
Un genial encuadre y una imagen estupenda.
Perfectos tonos y gradación de colores.
Un cordial saludo, JL.

Hi Donna.
Very beautiful painted sky and silhouettes. I like the simplicity, the uncluttered composition. Like big brush strokes on canvas. Very lovely, well done.
Regards, Steve.

Hello Donna, very nice colours in the sky here and reflected in the water. I think I may be tempted to crop a little from the bottom just below the cluster of rocks. Very nice.

Hi Donna

What a great sunrise. I love sunrises more than sunsets (maybe because I see more sunrises where I live than sunsets) and you have a good one here. I would have been tempted to have cloned out that single light becuase it is a little distracting, but otherwise I love the image and the composition is great.
