The Last Sunrise of 2014

One of the beauties of being at an East Coast beach is that you see the sunrise before anyone else does. I always make a point of taking a quick look out of the balcony at first light. Not all sunrises are worthy of a photo. When there are no clouds at all, the drama is missing. But on 2014's last morning, there were just enough to make it worth snapping a couple of pictures.

Here's the sun just peeping over the horizon....

The light changes quickly as the sun rises above the waterline....

Those little black speckles are a large flock of seagulls

And I love how that light flows into our condo.....That yellow glow is just how it looked.

I don't think Wilson was pleased with the early wake-up call.....

May I introduce.....Grumpy Dog

I did check for the first sunrise of 2015, but alas, it was a cloudless sky. I certainly can't complain about a blue sky day at the beach as a great way to start the year, but photo worthy it was not. I settled back in for a bit more rest.


  1. Wow, I can see why you took those photos, that looks amazing.
    As does Mr Grumpy! Poor Wilson, not a morning dog then eh Wilson?

    (Who isn't a morning dog either and is always last one up!)

  2. Beautiful! Wilson was "Mr. Grumpy Gills" with his morning wake up call!!

  3. That is beautiful. And I too learned that you have to have a few clouds or the sky just isn't interesting enough.

  4. Wonderful sunrise from last year, you captured the moment very well :-)

  5. We have often enjoyed being the last people on the continent to see the sun as it sets over the Pacific.

  6. Wow!! Those sun rise pictures are so pretty!!! Also, the girls agree with your boys!! Sleeping in is better!! LOL

  7. Wilson did mom get you up before the birds!

  8. I can't remember the last time I saw a sunrise. Not that I'm not awake. It's just that we have such heavy cloud cover every day we rarely catch sight of the sun.

    Thanks for sharing your lovely photos with us.

  9. Happy New Year to you all. Hope the year brings happiness, health and lots of treats too! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  10. Bahahahahaha - Wilson does look truly irritated!

    Beautiful lighting.

  11. Definitely beautiful! And a blue sky has its own beauty, too, but it definitely doesn't have the same drama!

  12. So beautiful!!!! I love golden sunrises. Grumpy dog made me smile!

  13. Oh beautiful! Monty isn't an early dog either - he'd rather sleep in then enjoy a sunrise.
