A brilliant sunrise!

“How sweet the morning air is! See how that one little cloud floats like a pink feather from some gigantic flamingo. Now the red rim of the sun pushes itself over the London cloud-bank. 
It shines on a good many folk, but on none, I dare bet, who are on a stranger errand than you and I. How small we feel with our petty ambitions and strivings in the presence of the great elemental forces of Nature!” 

Arthur Conan Doyle - Sherlock Holmes

This mornings sunrise was just stunning!

 The sky was filled with clouds and as the sun rose the clouds were edged in pink...






Then is changed to the most brilliant orange - it looked like the sky was on fire..




As we got closer to home this cloud appeared...




It was a great way to start the weekend!  We walked a different route this morning and bumped into one of DHs mates out walking his dog at 6am. We usually see a few tradies walking to work and as it gets lighter the joggers and dog walker start appearing. Its nice that walkers are friendly, everyone says hello and the dogs always look so happy to be out.

The good thing about walking is it gets me out of my head - I need to switch off from work on the weekends and after being out early it really does help me keep things in perspective and stop overthinking things. Well, time for me to get on with some weekend chores and decluttering.

  1. I love the pink and blue clouds. The red and orange are just too jarring for me. I rarely see a sunrise willingly. Your pictures are award worthy.
