SWF>>>>Sunrise on the road

These are some shots I took of last Saturday's sunrise while my hubby was driving. We were on the way to Barnegat Lighthouse State Park in New Jersey. LOL, it is not very easy to take clear photos while the car is moving 65 miles an hour. Oh, and I almost forgot my left hand is still in a splint. So I was trying to take these shots one handed with the car moving. They might not be the sharpest shots but I just love the colors.

The photo below looks like a scene from Hitchcock's movie The Bird's. LOL, I know its awful but I think it is funny. 
There was no way this one would come out clear, between the car moving and the birds moving it just wasn't possible.










To see more beautiful skies from around the world, check out Skywatch Friday. Thanks to the hosts: Sylvia, Wren, Sandy, Fishing Guy and Klaus. Thank you for stopping by my skywatch and I hope you have a great weekend.

  9. These are all wonderful shots. I agree one does remind me of that scary movie "The Birds". My favorites are the two with the bridges (4th and last one). I love your header!

  22. This is how you know you're addicted to taking pictures ;>)... I've taken my share at 65 mph while Bill drives, but not with a splint on one hand. (I probably would though.)

    However, your self-described not=so-good pix are better than some of us amateurs take when we're really trying.

    I wonder what kind of birds those were?

  28. Well done with one hand in moving car. Love your header and "The Birds"

    ReplyDelete
  29. WOW the birds, we had a TV news on big birds bombing moving cars. If they didn't see the bird, they would think it was something dropped from a plane.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think you did a fine job of capturing the wonderful colors in the sky. And the birds, too. Sure makes traveling fun taking pictures through the windshield!

    ReplyDelete
  31. awesome sunset- that orange is such a great color!
