There’s just something about staying in a warm and cozy bed… especially when you are retired.

I am in an early morning exercise class 2 times a week and we enjoy early morning desert rides when living in AZ. Then here in Pennsylvania we have lots of outdoor DIY projects that, especially in this current summer’s heat, are better done early in the morning. So…on the mornings I don’t have to move quickly… a sunrise is hard for me to experience… because this girl is staying put! When I saw Wandering Wednesday theme was SUNRISE… I sighed… and said, “not many of those in my archives.” 😏

I picked up my iPhone and opened up my Google photos App and searched, Sunrise. Well, of course every glorious sunset in my past popped up! Then I saw a few sunrises. Yay! This was one of them…

The above beauty was from our kitchen window here at the LakeHouse! One morning I awoke to see a bright pink light in the kitchen. At first I was puzzled and then I looked out the window and saw the most colorful sunrise …ever!

Unforgettable… perhaps.

But not if you were having this conversation with our Arizona friends and Sweet Man.

One morning we ALL set our alarm clocks for O’Dark Thirty!(Which means it was in the wee hours of the morning and no one should be awake!)

We all climbed into our Jeeps and climbed our favorite mountain to view the Lunar Eclipse and Blood Moon.

It was amazing! An experience we will never forget. We decided to stick around for the moon set.

We were all so focused on the moon set that we did not realize what was going on behind us! A colorful Arizona sunrise!

It’s amazing how that sky changed in minutes!

I have seen many a sunset and sunrise that were more beautiful and colorful. However… this one we witnessed all together on top of a mountain with the Lunar Eclipse! That my friends is…


How about you? Have you experienced any unforgettable sunrises?

  1. Ohh Nancy, these are glorious and thank you for sharing. I watched the blood moon rise here across the water and it was breath taking. One sunrise my heart will never forget was in Africa, Zimbabwe. As teenagers we had all driven out to the Matopos Hills, where we watched the sunrise in silence. <3 Xx

    1. Thank you for enjoying some of our unforgettable sunrise experiences!

      How fun this was again! Don’t you agree! Wednesday’s are so fun these days!

    1. The only one taken with my iPhone is the sunrise from my kitchen window. All the others are taken with my LUMIX.

      Thanks for enjoying the sunrises and for visiting!

  2. That was worth the early rising (or late stay up), Nance. What great photos of the blood moon and subsequent welcoming of the sun from atop the Arizona mountain. Wow.

  3. Nancy, I agree that must have been unforgettable! I love the sunrise from your kitchen window. We had one of those yesterday morning. I love looking through your camera lens my friend!

    1. Aren’t you just the sweetest! I always enjoy your kind words!

      Thanks so much for coming along on my Sunrise memory lane.

    1. They sure are spectacular!

      I’ve seen some beauties right here on the Lake here in Pennsylvania as well.

      Hope all is well with you!

  4. Definitely worth getting up for Nancy. And if not, there is this beautiful photo essay to encourage readers to at least give looking up at the sky early and late a try. Especially enjoyed your photos of the eclipse. Great captures with your lens. Thank you. All my best to you.

Thank You So Much... for sharing your kind words. I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your thoughts.
