Pink Saturday & Blue Monday

It's a first for me, combining Beverly's Pink Saturday with Sally's Blue Monday. I know many people participate in both, so here you'll get a 2fer! You'll understand the reason for the combo as you look at the pictures.
When I go to my fortnightly oncologist appointment I like to go really early so I miss the rush hour traffic going into Boston. This week my appointment was at 7:20, so I was leaving the house by 6:00, driving northeast, and this is what I saw.
A gorgeous pink cloud back-lit by the sun coming up. I grabbed my camera and took several photos through the windshield while driving, and this was the best I got.Ten minutes later, and look what happened to the cloud! As the sun rose and the sky became golden and blue, so did the cloud. Pretty nifty, huh? I felt like Joe Pro Photographer sitting in a field taking photos as the sun came up. Except I was using a point 'n shoot and going 70 MPH. I did nothing to alter these photos except crop them.
I hope you'll visit both Beverly for Pink Saturday and Sally for Blue Monday to see more beautiful examples of these colors.

You and I are on the same page with our point and shoot camera. I never leave home without mine now. I really enjoy looking for things to use on the blog. I suggest you be careful using it at 70 MPH tho. That is an incredible shot you captured.
