Sunrise

Early morning is my favourite time of the day. I love getting up early to watch the daylight nudge away the darkness. Today was no exception. It was pretty cool at 1C degree. In fact, the water in the river was warmer because there was steam or mist rising from it. I felt the urge to go outside in my rubber boots and walk throught the moist, long grass down to the river and take some pictures to share with you …… it was quite cool standing there waiting for the sun to slowly, very slowly, show itself from over the eastern treeline. But I couldn’t resist the temptation to take pictures to show how lucky I am to see this every day.

    You should have got up a half hour earlier. The Moon, Venus, Jupiter and Mars are all in very close quarters. Very cool!
