SkyWatch Friday: Mexican sunrise

We were on our Mexican cruise for several days before my intrepid photographer managed to get these photos of the sunrise.

Our cabin was on the starboard side of the Carnival Spirit, so we were facing the west as we sailed south.

He did try to get up to go to the other side of the ship to catch the sunrise, and I even tried to help by waking him up one morning (the day the clocks went back, so I woke him up an hour early).


Finally, on our return northward, he was up and caught the sun rising through a layer of cloud. At first it looked like a snowcapped mountain on the horizon, then it began to take on fiery color, a true Mexican sunrise!

Well, Kay that was a successful account of a sunrise. It is always difficult to find the right moment, but Dick has done a good job here.
Thanks Kay for your visit and comment. I'll send you some baby photos of my new granddaughter.
