Cloudscape

While You Were Sleeping

A sky with what look almost like quilted clouds is lit by a rising sun which shows orange on the hotizon. There is a blue fading from pale to dark as it goes higher above the trees in the foreground. The trees are mixed, some evergreen, most deciduous with branches winter bare. The wunrise and clouds are seen through all except the evergreens.
Good Morning

My thoughts when I saw this were “While You Were Sleeping, a Damask Sky Unfurled”. That morning, I was out with my camera at daybreak when this damask sky appeared behind the house. I liked how it looked to me as if someone was shaking a translucent table cloth over the landscape, about to lay it down over the still sleeping landscape.

Have a wonderful Sunday, friends.
