(Mostly) Wordless Wednesday: Pastel Skies

Today was back-to-school day for The Boy, which means that I was awake for the sunrise this morning.

I usually post sunrise pictures which are vivid and amazing and full of scarlet and golden painted skies, with sunbeams bursting through the clouds...

Today is cloudy and overcast, and so today's sunrise was more muted...but no less beautiful...

It was a pastel, watercolor painted sky...

Soft and subdued, the sky gradually lightened until it was a delicate, blushing hue infused with pink and lavender and shaded with silvery gossamer clouds

It was a peaceful, calm sunrise with it's own soft beauty that looked like it could have been painted by Monet.

I hope the gauzy, silvered sunrise is a portent for a peaceful, lovely day as well.

Happy Wednesday.
