While I was sleeping

I enjoy sleeping late on the weekends and for me, sleeping late means getting up around 8 am. I mentioned yesterday that my husband (and the dog) were discussing the fact that I’m on a three hour time difference than they are.

And thank heavens no, the dog doesn’t answer back.

While I was sleeping this morning, I happened to have missed an awesome sunrise. But I didn’t really miss it, because I got to see it through the eyes of my husband via the beautiful photos he took.

This was our sky on this hot morning in Maryland.

You can barely see our house on the right. I just can’t believe this gorgeous color, can you? My, oh my.

I love these ever-changing colors. And the clouds! They are just so beautiful.

{This} is the first post I did entitled “While I was sleeping”. I’d just begun blogging and it was one of the first times my husband used the new camera.

I think he’s come a long way, baby.

All photos taken with a Nikon D80 and the 18-55 kit lens that came with the camera.

Love,

PS ~ The weather broke finally and the breezes coming through my living room window as I write this are incredibly sweet and cool. Oh, happy day.

Oh the colors. They are wonderful. But yo know what? I absolutely love your husband's photos from 2007, especially the first one. A little post processing with photoshop and it would be amazing!

What a great combo ~ you sleep in, he clicks the pics ~ you do the photo processing ....

.... and you both get the credit!

This is definitely a marriage ~ maybe one made in photography heaven!

Keep up the combo work! Because it works!

Mother Nature is ever so impressive and your husband captures her beauty wonderfully! Looks like its safe to sleep as "late" as you want, you won't miss anything with your husband's great photography eye!

Cudos to your husband. Stunning photographs ... Shame on us who miss the dawn!

TSannie said...

Glorious photos!
That cool front that came rolling through was all kinds of delightful! Perfect sleeping weather.

mrs mediocrity said...

Wow, just beautiful! And so nice that you got to sleep, and still see the sun rise...

jill said...

I saw a similar sky back at Christmas time but it was an evening sky, and I also had to take photos so I could remember it!

Glad you got to see it through hubby's eyes!

Marilyn said...

I was up early yesterday, but we didn't have this sunrise just a few miles south of you. If I had seen it I would have expected what we got in the afternoon. We were put under a Tornado Warning and it got bad.....goosebumps bad.....
I love the early morning more than any other part of the day....
How lucky for all of us that hubs was up to capture this light show.
Tell him thank you for me!!!!

Daryl said...

The Japanese Redneck said...

Really beautiful. Great photos by your hubby.

Egghead said...

Wow that sky is stunning. How lucky for you that he was able to catch that beauty while you got your beauty rest. So sweet!

Deb said...

Hi! Just checking in...I burnt to a crisp on the very first day. Damn spray on sunscreen! Now I am ducking for the shade.
Lovely photos, Kate!

JackDaddy said...

Just make sure he's not taking pictures of YOU while you're sleeping :)

Oliag said...

When I worked at a nursing home I had to get up every day at 5 AM..this was not natural for me and the only thing I miss is the sunrises:)...now I'm inclined to get up at 8 too...Those sunrise photos are stunning!...but I believe the saying goes "red sky in morning sailor take warning"...Hope bad weather is not on your way:)

A beautiful perfect June day here in RI too...Enjoy!

Char said...

wow - that is a glorious sunrise - if i knew those were happening everyday, maybe i would wake up....

but probably not.

i'm not a morning person either.

Gail said...

Okay, he gets his own site, I believe he has topped you with this beauty.

Sharmon Davidson said...

I agree; these are awesome; good job, hubby! I just happened to think- if you got up at 8, does that mean he got up at 5? OMG, that's even earlier than my husband gets up!

Hilary said...

Beautiful golden sky.. he sure does take a fine photo or several.
