Sunrises and sunsets can alter and even dissipate quickly, but I wandered beyond the yard to see what other views I might catch.
This is the new barn. While it is anything but new, it is less old than the old barn. The sky beyond was not in the direct sunrise as it was more to the north, but the shades of magenta looked very appealing to my eyes.
I then took this one of the same barn from the other side of that fence above but with my iPhone, which I was also carrying. I really like the angle with the grasses joining the road to point the way toward the barn.
As I turned around more toward the rising sun, it seems that the sky began to lose those nice magenta shades to become more yellow and orange. First came the old barn.
Beyond the old barn lies the planer mill which has been converted into a gazebo or summer room.
It was a bit chilly, and you can see above that the sun was beginning to rise into the sky, so I turned back toward the house. I did take a few more shots, but the best light was over, so I am not going to post them.
But it was such an unexpected treat to have both snow and a nice sunrise on my first morning in the country before settling into the more typical bleakness of late November that was the general norm of the week. Of course, I had been expecting bleak, so I wasn't really disappointed, but this was a very unexpected and satisfying morning. One doesn't necessarily expect snow so early in the year, and I certainly hadn't expected such a light show as well.
