SkyWatch: Daybreak on Sideling Hill


The first light of a cold January day brightens the eastern sky on what was to be a cloudy gray day. In the valley the lights of farms and homes can be seen with the bright cluster visible in lower center being that of the Sideling Hill Plaza of the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

This photograph was taken from a scenic overlook along the Bark Rd south the Lincoln Highway (US Route 30).

Beautiful photo I also did an early morning sky shot for sky watch. I only have a cheap little six mega pixel and I am new to photography but I have a passion and I think I have an eye for a good picture and this sure is one.

What lovely landscape. Your shot has really nice colors and I like how you got a bit of the branches on the left to frame it. Very pretty area you live in.

Good Morning! Thought I would stop by and see your skywatch pic. Great pic as always. Don't think we can get great scenic shots like that around here. Hope you have a great day.

Beautiful, I am more likely to catch the evening light in this spot cause I really don't like to get up that early. This image convinces me I need to leave that warm bed once in awhile.
