Long Reaching Sunrise

The sunrise was striking ... and very fleeting. A low pressure area was on the way. The rising sun illuminated the bases of the thickening cloud in a fiery display. The colours change by the minute. As soon as the sun angle gets higher than the cloud bases, this light show will vanish in a flash.
I love to paint skies - each one tells a story. This sun rise would have a long reach (on Long Reach Lane) and impact the weather story for the next couple of days.

This shimmering sunrise attracted me while dancing around the blog after reading your polar vortex commentary. (which was informative and enjoyed). Huge trees and few windows usually obscure our sunrises, but we often head a mile down the road to watch stunning sunsets when clouds are at varying altitudes. Yup, nearly impossible to capture a moment.
