some mornings I get up early and go and watch the sun come up… and mornings when it’s a bit cloudy can be the best mornings of all coz that seems to be when all the colours in the sky are brightest and clearest and richest …. this picture is of the graceful old pines that stand proud on the headland overlooking the beach at the end of my street … it’s so early that the street lights are still on and somehow the combination of the early light and the otherworldly yellow street lights made this ordinary view something a little bit special….

and here is a much darker version of this view taken moments before

    sheeesh…everyone knows you’ve got two sons :)

  • crickey don’t tell son number three about that or there really will be tears before bedtime….. I mean sure sure my memory is struggling to maintain the pace these days but I’m pretty sure they used to fill the whole back seat of the car…… :)

  • thanks cool… when you have three sons all of a similar age it often seems like there about five of them….. :)

    Beautiful sunrise!…yeah, those lights add an extra glow!

  • thanks Wendi… and yes those lights were a nice suprise when I looked back over my shots for the morning…. makes ordinary trees into something else altogether…… so glad you like this……:)
