Sunrise Imperfection

The weatherman says the weather is going to be perfect in the morning, not a cloud in the sky. Perfect is in the eye of the beholder, I guess. I like a clear sky as much as the next guy, but all this perfection gets to be a little monotonous after a while. I want a sky with something in it. Don't get me wrong, I don't mean gray and overcast.  But clouds can be nice - just a little something for some character.  For months now, it seems, we've had clear skies nearly every morning - a weatherman's forecast of perfect weather.  Finally last week, we started getting the beginnings of the summer rainy season. The skies haven't been particularly impressive yet, but there has been a touch of character. This weekend, Saturday and Sunday mornings, we had sunrises that announced themselves with trumpets of color.  Hallelujah!   The first decent sunrise sky pictures I've gotten in months. Perfect is fine, but give me character any day.
