More Wintery Sky Shots

We've had a couple of super foggy mornings where I work, because we are so close to the water. It makes for a beautiful and ethereal sunrise. This is the view from my office window. I wish the wires weren't there, but there are no other windows in the office that have this exact view.

Click on them for a real close up. I may try to crop the wires out.

Peering through the fog at the trees in the distance.
The sun doesn't come up till nearly 8:00 a.m. in the winter.
Taken at about 9:30 a.m.


  1. The pictures are great, and the wires are OK. If you watch The Beatles' film Help!, when they are in the Alps there is a sequence with wires they just couldn't avoid, and that being back when they didn't have the kinds of skills to airbrush them out like they can now, they just wrote the notes of the song across them!

  2. you really are a terrific photographer - these pics and the ones in your previous post are fantastic -

  3. Are you sure that three aren't someone with a seriously bad sticky up hairstyle standing just in front of the camera crasher squirrel style?

    Perfect - even with the wires!

  5. Thanks guys! I'm still hoping to get a photo of the shadow of Mt. Rainier on the clouds at sunrise. It doesn't last long but man alive is it am impressive sight to see. This MASSIVE triangular shadow that starts on the peak of Rainier and spreads across the clouds. I did get some pics of it in 2000.

    Hai JoJo,
    I hope you don't mind, but picture 3 is now my new desktop.

  7. Hi Elka! No, I don't mind at all! I'm quite flattered, in fact! :)

  8. Stunning pictures, Jojo!
    I love how dark it is!

  9. Very pretty. I wish we had fog, instead of the blinding snowstorm we're having at the moment.
