Living on the east coast of Kauai and having to get up early for work, I often see the sunrise. We are also fortunate to live uphill from the coast, so we can see some of the ocean and have generally open views to the east. Last winter, the sunrises were so impressive that I started taking pictures of them. Now that we have wet weather again, the clouds and rain catch the morning colors more than they did all summer.

Here is how my week started out last Monday:

Wide-angle view of golden light from the sunrise filtering through the cumulus clouds just off the east coast at Wailua

I didn’t even notice the two birds in the upper-right hand corner until I downloaded the picture. From the silhouette, I think they are the non-native Myna birds, a more common relative of the talking Myna birds.
