Sunrises and Sunsets while at Mt. Nebo, Arkansas -Feb. 2014

Neal, Patti and George at Sunrise Point at 6:45 am on 2/26/14 (19 degrees F --wind chill made it feel like 9 degrees)
Besides just being in our little cabin with a view on top of the mountain at Mt Nebo, Arkansas,  the thing I love the most is seeing the beautiful sunrises and sunsets from that mountain. AND--since we had friends with us this time,  we were hoping to see more 'beauties' while there.  AND---we certainly did!!!  Hope you enjoy seeing some photos of God's blessings to us today!!!

So grab a cuppa and sit back and relax for a minute ---looking at my photos!! Hope you enjoy them as much as I do... Click on them for larger photos!


Sunrise- 2/26/14;  Lots of clouds that morning --but where the sun peaked through was pretty; Love the way it glistened on the water below;



Sunset- 2/26/14;  We had a gorgeous sunset that night.  I love framing my sunsets with the trees around our cabin.


Sunset- 2/26/14;  This is one of my favorite photos EVER of a sunset... I love the tree branches framing this sunset.



Sunrise- 2/27/14;  This one was a beauty!  The photo is looking down into the town of Dardanelle, about 6:45 am. 



Sunrise- 2/27/14;   Neal, Patti and George enjoyed seeing this beautiful sunrise from Sunrise Point. It was another cold morning --but not quite as cold as the day before!



Sunset- 2/27/14;  I love sunrises and sunsets when there are some clouds around.  This was another beauty, don't you think?



This is a close-up of the clouds above the sunset.  I took this photo AFTER the sun went down behind the mountain!  Aren't the colors just beautiful?

Well---that's my list of sunrises and sunsets for this year from Mt. Nebo.  There's one more fantastic beauty on my Photo Blog today.  Please don't miss it!  Click HERE for that blog.    AND--don't forget to check out my sidebar --since I put all new quotes on this week.   Thanks!!!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
Hugs,

Those are the most awesome sunrise and sunset pictures I have ever seen. Well worth the early morning and evening hours and the cold temps. Thank you so much for sharing.

Arkansas Patti said...

Goodness, Patti really is small, especially flanked by a pair of redwood men.
All were beautiful but Sunset- 2/27/14 really caught my eye. Even here in the lower hills, we get some real beauties.

That's the wonderful thing about beautiful sunrises and sunsets - no two are the same! Beautiful!

fabulous sunrises and sunsets and I admire how you brave the cold to et "that" shot. Sunsets do look better when framed or have something in the foreground they also are better composed when the sun is not right in the middle of the shot. Some of the best scenes are after the sun has gone down as you have discovered.

Lovely, I have chased many. Getting in the right place in time can be hard.

I don't see many sunrises, but I do love a beautiful sunset. Thanks for the "fix" this morning. :)

Betsy, Great photos of sunrise and sunset! After so many years of getting up at 4:30 AM to go to work, in retirement we rarely get up in time for sunrise. Thanks for reminding us what it looks like! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

A little Fiddler on the Roof!:) Really beautiful sun shots....but it looks coooold! Hope you are having a good week. When i look at those pics, I think.....awesome early morning with coffee as the sun comes up....and that is perfection.

These are fabulous shots- do all the cabins have this view or just the one you two always stay in?
