Finding Beauty

'If one really loves nature, one can find beauty everywhere.' Vincent van Gogh

Spied a spot of colour on the horizon during my early morning commute that begged me to stop and enjoy the light show.  Click the link to Sky Watch Friday to see what bloggers from all over have found in their sky to share this week.
Adding a link to my Tattered Angels post full of all kinds of bright and cheerful colours.

Good morning from the northeast USA ~ Here our sunrises have been muted by much rain...
but I'm enjoying your beautiful sunrise* I'm glad I'm not the only one that will pull over to enjoy and photograph something of beauty*
Have a sweet weekend~

Hi! thank you for your comment today. It's very nice to meet you :-)
I cannot get enough of watching the sky. And when it gets 'painted' like the one on your picture there is just so much joy and peace and harmony to look at it, isn't it?
Have a wonderful day, sending love.
