A holy moly sunrise

I was sleepily doing my morning barn chores one day last week when I stopped to watch the sun come up. I had an inkling that it might be on the spectacular side, so I went to get my camera. I really did shout "holy moly!" when I came back outside.

  2. Incredible sights! I love the sky reflection in the wheelbarrow, and the fact that you can look right through your barn to the sky on the other side. What a place we live in!
