Different hues of an Outback Sunrise

I’ve lived in Outback Australia for nearly 34 years, in all that time I have never tired of the scenery and I haven’t missed too many sunrises either. They still take my breath away and leave me standing in awe.
So I thought I would share one with you.
When I looked out after 6am and seen the cloud in the east I knew it would make a great sunrise.
The crew were fed, packed up with lunch and gone, so it was just the dogs, camera and me to enjoy sunrise at home.
This sunrise was taken 16 May 2015 (yesterday)
The first photo was taken at 6.37.15am (yes that is down to seconds) the last 7.12.26am
I took 37 photos in total of the sunrise but sharing 16 of them with you.

As if the sun needs all the attention on it, all the “colour” surrounds it, like a spotlight, it makes its presence in the sky of a brand new day 7.06.11am

Standing in the chilly morning, enjoying the company of our three four legged friends and their antics, witnessing and capturing another magic Outback sunrise always brings a smile to my face. 7.12.26
Hope you enjoyed viewing it as much as I enjoy sharing, knowing how blessed I am to be able to capture scenes like this.
If you were asked to pick your favourite, which one would you pick?
I would love to know please.
Maybe leave the time taken in the comments, thanks.

    I love the close up of the windmill and tank along with the sunrise at 6:56/ 6:57. What a beautiful sunrise! Like you I never tire of them.

    Thanks Anne, it truly was a very special sunrise, they are very hard to tire of aren’t they. Thanks for your picks too Anne, appreciated.

  3. Merry-Anne 

    I love the closeup of the windmill and also the clouds being kissed by the sun, so I’ll go with both in 7.12.26am. Just what we were all waiting for; the sunrise. Thanks for the lovely morning shots, I was up early for our Ag show but didn’t have the time or camera ready.

    Thanks so much for picking out the ones you like Merry-Anne
    It is a pleasure to take shot that people like yourself appreciate, cause I enjoy them regardless 🙂
    Hope your Ag Show went well. Many out our way have been reduced to one day or cancelled altogether due to the ongoing drought.

    Yes I found it hard to pick one Greg, reason for me showing all the different changes in one sunrise. I find them all interesting & marvel at the colours. Ann
