Carolina Beach Sunrise. . . . . . . . .

I set the alarm for 6:30 am this morning not wanting to miss the chance 
to take sunrise photos. At first I was not sure of catching a perfect sunrise, the
 clouds were heavy, almost threatening. 
Within 15 minutes all changed. . . . . . . . for the better.
There were a few early beach walkers, a trawler followed by gulls and pelicans,
 beautiful cloud patterns, and finally the golden rays of the sun falling across the
 ocean making a path to the shoreline.
Imagine what you would miss if you slept in at the coast!

The perfect 'glitter path' - I didn't know until now that there was a name for
 this beautiful pathway across the water.

All photos taken today 6:30-7:15 am - from our 10th floor balcony.


  1. Gorgeous picture and well worth waking early for Mary! It's a cold November rainy day up here so enjoy where you are. xo Pam

  2. Wonderful photos - isn't it extraordinary how quickly the sky changes both in colour, texture, and formation, and all within 45 minutes?

  3. Gorgeous! I miss the sun sets we saw over the Gulf of Mexico when we lived in Naples, Florida.

  4. That was certinly woth getting up for

  5. Beautiful! It certainly helps to be on the 10th floor with an obstructed view. Cloudy here today so not much sunshine. Best wishes, Tammy

  6. Dear Mary, It was worth getting up so early. Thank you for sharing such wonderful photos with us. They are scenes that us land lubbers never get to see.

  7. Beautiful! I had to smile, as for us we wait for the sunsets over the sea, equally as stunning. What fun it would be to come to your side and see a sunrise.

  8. What lovely photos! Yes, we got a few times early to see the sunrise over Scarborough but after doing that twice, my desire to stay warm under the covers took over, sad to say. :)


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
