This morning’s sunrise was pure loveliness.

I was astonished at this morning's sunrise. The sky was tinted in mauves and pinks, and the Pacific Ocean appeared purple. I needed to change the lens on my camera to get a photo, but by the time I did so the unusual colors were gone. Not to fear - Richard Hansen to the rescue.

Isn't it beautiful? Sunrises like this special one are gifts for waking up early!

Thanks to Richard for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
