More Sunrise over Fouriesburg Dam

Last week I posted Sunrise over Fouriesburg Dam on SkyWatch Friday. These photos were taken a few minutes later to the right of the dam in that post.

It's amazing how the colours differ in the same sunrise!

Soft pink clouds reflected in the cold dark water of the dam

The sun begins to emerge from behind the trees
Finally the warmth of the sun is visible behind the trees and reflected in the water

  1. Wow! These are fantastic. Each one is as beautiful as the last. It is amazing how just a few minutes can give you an entirely different look in the sky.
