"Red sky at morning, sailors take warning."
I couldn't help thinking of this old saying when I saw the red sky this morning. I guess this means the weather is changing, a reminder that summer is coming to a close and fall is officially here.
I was up very early this morning! Which was great, because not only did I witness this magnificent sunrise, but I captured it with my camera. These photos are from my front yard looking south.
The sky looks like it's on fire! Yet there is a chill in the air; rain is on its way.
As the red faded, the sky changed to pale yellow, blue and gray. In the pale morning light, everything looked surreal.
What a beautiful morning! I took the opportunity to pause and reflect, to say goodbye to summer, and to feel grateful for another day.
Wednesday is Fall Equinox. So, Happy Fall everyone, and here's wishing you:
"A September to remember.
An October full of splendor.
A November to treasure."

Delores gorgeous photography. what a special lady you are to reflect on life in such a posetive manner and to wish you readers such a wonderful sentiment. xoxo Kathysue
Delores, this is amazing photography. The ske does look as if it is on fire. Love that little rhyme. May I use it on one of my QCI blogs this month while I'm guest blogger over there? ~ Sarah
These are gorgeous photos. What do they say, (DH repeats this to me all the time just because he loves to fish) "Red sails at night sailors delight, red sails in the morn sailors take warn." I don't think it has anything to do with the season but a good fishing quote to keep in mind. I enjoyed your post.

Gorgeous photos, Delores! As much as I like Summer I love Fall. It's my favorite time of the year. Have a great week.
The pictures are just beautiful! I am enjoying your photography! I have had trouble replying via e-mail to some that have asked about the rattan cake stand, so passing info along here! I purchased it at a store in Charlotte, NC (Traditions Interiors and Accessories...her blog is listed on my blog list!), but I have also seen it at http://www.rshcatalog.com/...one of my favorite catalogs...just such cute things! Thanks for stopping by Three Pixie Lane!
I, too, LOVE taking photos of the beautiful sky in all it's splendor.
Yes, Sept. 23rd is the first day of fall and I don't have a single fallish deco out in my whole house. Still knee deep in summer out here in West Texas. :))
Such glorious photos. God clearly has a masterful hand. It's amazing how the sky cn change so dramatically and take on the season at had. Gorgeous.

Took my breath away! Gorgeous photography of God's work. laurie
Thanks for getting up early to get the magnificent photos for me. I tend to specialize more in sunsets...LOL. Cherry Kay
beautiful, I love it!!!
You have captured such beauty in your photos! And your reflections on them is very inspiring, as well. I can remember many California mornings when visiting our son out there. Some of my favorites were when we were in Palm Springs and the sun rose over the mountains. Just beautiful.... I was up so early because my inner clock was still on Eastern Time Zone. LOL
Thanks for sharing all this loveliness.
Gorgeous! I see you are really getting good with that new camera of yours :) You remind me of a little kid with her new toy!
These are fantastic!!!!
We had a lot of red in our sky this morning too...but nothing that spectacular! Have a great week! Diana
That was quite a sunrise to catch on camera! Great photos and indeed a perfect way to welcome autumn weather...
